William Drury was my grandfather although unfortunatly I never got to know him very well as I was only 5 years old when he was shot. I understand that some recognition is going to be presented in his honor in the near future. I would like to be kept up to date as to what and when. There was also another officer shot at the same time, although he survived he suffered for a number of years due to the head wound he suffered. His name was "Buck" Paine(Spelling?). He was kept on the force although he could not fully function in his police duties. That was how good officers were taken care of in those days.
