Officer Rosario Collura, and Officer Leonard Lesnieski  were shot and killed when they interrupted a drug deal while on patrol.

They observed four men in an alley and stopped to question them. They had patted down three of the suspects and were patting down the fourth suspect when the man produced a gun and shot both officers in the chest. The suspect fled but was later apprehended.

Today, March 19th marks the 24th anniversary of their deaths. They are missed by all of their friends, family, and members of the law enforcement community.
