Police Officer Slook, assigned to the 9th District, was patrolling his beat at 16th and Callowhill Streets at approximately 1:30am when he observed a speeding car driving without headlights on 16th Street. He pursued the car in a taxi cab, and finally apprehended them at Ridge Avenue and Ogden Streets. Officer Slook searched the driver and when he determined the driver was unarmed, he put his weapon away. Another offender who was sitting in the rear of the vehicle then shot and killed Officer Slook. He was 37 years-old, served with the Department for 13 years, and is survived by his son.
