Edgar Nagie

Patrolman Nagie was shot and killed as he and his partner searched for a suspect who had threatened his wife with a gun approximately 30 minutes earlier. The officers learned that the suspect was at a location on Washington Avenue. When they arrived at the scene Patrolman Nagie's partner covered the front of the home as Patrolman Nagie went to the back of the home.

Patrolman Nagie encountered the suspect and both immediately exchanged shots. Patrolman Nagie was struck three times and mortally wounded. The suspect had also been struck in the chest and died a short time later, after being taken into custody by Patrolman Nagie's partner.

Patrolman Nagie was survived by his wife and two daughters.
