Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Whiting Sweeting / Male - 26 years old
of Stephentown, Rensselaer County, N.Y.

born 05 Aug 1764, Norton, Bristol County, MA and the son of Lewis & Abiah “Cobb” Sweeting.

It would seem Mr. Sweeting wrote his own version of events in a subsequently printed book titled "The Narrative of Whiting Sweeting", in which he perhaps disagrees with official versions in that Constable Quimby was perhaps stabbed and not shot; and the warrant was for theft and not trespassing.

  
Location: NY   USA   Mon. Jan. 03, 1791
Summary: Constable Darius Quimby was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man on a trespassing warrant.

Constable Quimby is the first known law enforcement officer to be killed in the line of duty in the United States.

Disposition: The suspect was found guilty of murdering Constable Quimby in the July session of the New York State Supreme Court and was hanged on August 26, 1791.
