Location: OH   USA   Fri. Jul. 23, 1926
Summary: Officer Penny was shot and killed while he and his partner investigated reports of two suspicious men at approximately 2:45 am. Approximately 30 minutes later the officers located a truck loaded with stolen chickens believed to be used by the men and took up a position nearby to wait for their return.

A short time later both men returned to the truck and the two officers confronted them. As they handcuffed one of the men to the vehicle's steering wheel the second suspect fled on foot. Both officers pursued the suspect who opened fire and struck Officer Penny in the abdomen. Both officers returned fire but did not the strike the suspect. Officer Penny's partner continued to pursue the suspect until being struck in the leg.

The suspect who shot the officers was able to make his escape. The other suspect was taken into custody by other responding units.

The suspect who escaped was captured in Detroit, Michigan on October 1, 1926.

Officer Penny was survived by his two sons, daughter, sister, and two brothers.
