Person driving was wanted for bank robbery, and one of the people that Joe Sanchez Picon was investigating concerning the Avilez’ gang.
Two Policemen Are Slain;
East Side Gunman Escapes
This is an archive photo from September 16, 1975, of police dusting the suspect's car, used by the suspect who gunned down Patrolman Andrew Glover and Sgt. Frederick Reddy, when they pulled the car over for a traffic infraction on 5th. Street & Avenue B. Detectives were not yet aware that the suspect was wanted for bank robbery. This was the same suspect that Joe Sanchez Picon had warned his commanding officer at the 90 Pct. Joe had also warned Andrew Glover and his commanding officer. "This is not Park Avenue, let the f**ks kill each other," said Joe's commanding officer. "Well, F**ks just don't kill each other. One day a cop is going to run into one of these bad boys, and get killed," Joe sadly responded. Ironically enough, that cop was Joe's friend, Police Officer Andrew Glover and Sgt. Frederick Reddy. This is the inspiration for the story that Joe wrote and can be read in his published book "Latin Blues".
