Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NY   USA   Sat. Sep. 13, 1969
Summary: Chief Thomas Reilly and Patrolman Robert Mumford were shot and killed while questioning a man they had pulled over about a gas station robbery. The suspect then drove to a nearby home in Munnsville and forced a woman and her two daughters, ages four and six, to drive him in their car to Syracuse. He released his hostages in downtown Syracuse. Syracuse Police arrested the suspect the next day.

Both officers were transported to Oneida County Hospital where Patrolman Mumford was pronounced dead and Chief Reilly died four days later.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death in February, 1971. On January 7, 1974 he was re-sentenced to 50 years to life. Charges of armed robbery and kidnapping were dismissed because a judge ruled the suspect was denied his right to a speedy trial. The killer died in prison in 2008.
