Incident Details
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Date of Incident: Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Weapon Used: Handgun; .45 caliber
Suspect Info: Shot and killed

Police Officer Patrick McDonald was shot and killed after pulling over a vehicle.

Officer McDonald was on patrol when he stopped a vehicle occupied by two men. When asked, the passenger of the vehicle proved Officer McDonald with a false name. Officer McDonald asked the suspect to exit the vehicle, but the suspect jumped out of the driver's side door and fled on foot. Officer McDonald pursued the suspect for several blocks while requesting back-up officers to respond.

Officer McDonald caught up with the suspect at the corner of North Colorado Street and North 17th Street. Officer McDonald and the suspect engaged in a violent struggle, during which the suspect drew a .45-caliber handgun and shot Officer McDonald several times. When Officer McDonald fell to the ground, the suspect stood over him and fired several more shots, killing Officer McDonald.

The suspect then stole a bicycle and fled the location, where he was intercepted by motorcycle Officers from the Highway Patrol. The suspect knocked one Officer from his motorcycle by throwing his bicycle at him. The second Officer got off of his motorcycle and engaged the suspect in a running gun battle, in which the Officer was wounded and the suspect was killed.

The suspect, who was on parole, having been released from prison just weeks proper to this incident, was wanted for assaulting several Police Officers two days prior.

Police Officer Patrick McDonald had served with the Philadelphia Police Department for eight years and was assigned to the Highway Patrol.

My thoughts go out to the family.

It's never a pleasant thing to lose another hero.
