Description
Detective Lieut. Hugh A. Crowley is lying on the floor of the office of the Village Theatre in Westwood, where he was shot to death by two bandits on January 12, 1932. The two bandits waited for Crowley and fired when he opened the office door. As he fell dead, he shot the gun from one bandit's hand. Investigators at the scene believe the killing was deliberately planned.
