Fatal Incident Summary

Location: NY   USA   Mon. Nov. 13, 1989
Summary: Detective Keith L. Williams and Detective Richard J. Guerzon Guerzon were gunned down by a prisoner as they were returning him to Riker's Island. The detectives picked up the prisoner at Riker's Island to bring him to the Queen's District Attorneys Office so a polygraph test could be administered. The prisoner was secured in a room and handcuffed to a pipe on the wall. The detectives left the assailant unsupervised. It was during this time that their killer broke into a locker within his reach, stealing a gun.

When polygraph was canceled, the prisoner was cuffed behind his back and returned to Rikers Island. As the detectives drove along the Grand Central Parkway near LaGuardia Airport, the prisoner drew the weapon and ordered the detectives to pull the car to the side of the road. As soon as the vehicle stopped, the prisoner killed both officers. He un-cuffed himself with the detectives handcuff keys and fled. The detectives killer was apprehended a few hours after the murder.

The killer was convicted of two counts of second degree murder and sentenced to 91 years to life. He will be eligible for parole in 2079.

Detective Williams was assigned to the Queens District Attorneys Squad. For eight years. His wife and daughter survive him.p
