Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Thu. Sep. 02, 1976
Summary: Patrolman Reese succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained three weeks earlier after he and his partner responded to a call involving a man with a gun. When they arrived at the scene they were told by the suspect's mother that the man wanted to kill himself but had left the home.

The officers patrolled the area around the home for a short time and then returned to the home. As they approached the home they noticed several people standing on the porch. As they continued to approach the porch the suspect suddenly yelled out that he was not going back to jail and immediately shot himself in the stomach. The suspect's father then attempted to subdue him but knocked him off of the porch. The suspect then began firing at the officers, striking Patrolman Reese. Although wounded, Patrolman Reese was able to return fire and strike the suspect.

The suspect died a short time later as a result of the shot he inflicted upon himself. Patrolman Reese was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where he died three weeks later
