On July 6, 1934, Officer Bobosky and his partner, Richard Zimmerman, were assigned to a special operation to combat auto thefts. At approximately 12:30 a.m., the officers curbed a vehicle at Lake Street and Western Avenue which was missing its license plates. As Officer Bobosky approached the three males in the vehicle, he asked “Who owns this car?” The driver then leaned out of the window and shot the officer in the abdomen. Officer Zimmerman rushed his partner to Washington Boulevard Hospital where he later succumbed to his bullet wound. All three suspects remain unidentified.
