We Remember

OPMF48 years ago today...
Constable Robert C. Carrick serving with the Sandwich West Township Police

At 1505 hours, Constable Carrick attended a dwelling in response to a domestic complaint. The complaint indicated shots had been fired but Constable Carrick attended without backup. On arrival, he secured the safety of the wife, child and baby-sitter. He was fired on by an occupant on the second floor of the dwelling who was using a 12 and a 20 gauge shotgun with B.B. and S.S.G. In the ensuing gun battle, Constable Carrick was wounded five times including a head wound that proved fatal. A further gun battle took place on the arrival of Constable Bob Ross, Sandwich West Police and Constable Al Oakley, Windsor Police. Both officers were wounded; Constable Ross lost an eye. A short time later the suspect, William Roy Rosik, age 22, walked from the dwelling, surrendered and was arrested.
