Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NY   USA   Fri. Mar. 29, 1963
Summary: Patrolman George Crane was shot and killed with his own service revolver while attempting to arrest a man for burglary.

Patrolman Crane and his partner responded to a call of a burglary in progress at 334 East 105th Street, Manhattan. When they arrived, they observed a male on the roof of the location. Patrolman Crane climbed the fire escape while his partner climbed the stairs of the building. When Patrolman Crane got to the roof, he confronted the suspect. A struggle ensued and the suspect was able to gain control of Patrolman Crane's service revolver. The suspect then shot and killed him and fled.

Two suspects were apprehended the following day and charged with murder. Their first trial ended in a hung jury, but the suspect that shot Patrolman Crane was convicted of murder in a second trial and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. He was paroled August 2, 1984.

Patrolman Crane was assigned to the 23rd Precinct and had served with the New York City Police Department for nearly three and a half years. He is survived by his wife and daughter. His wife passed away in January 2012.
