✍️One hundred and fifty policemen and detectives laid SIEGE to his top-floor HIDEWAY. They chopped holes in the roof; they tried to SMOKE OUT Crowley, the “cop killer,” with TEAR-GAS. Then they MOUNTED their machine guns on surrounding buildings, and for more than an hour one of New York’s fine residential areas REVERBERATED with the crack of PISTOL FIRE and the rut-tat-tat of machine guns. Crowley, CROUCHING behind an OVER-STUFFED chair, fired INCESSANTLY at the police. Ten thousand excited people watched the battle. Nothing like it had ever been seen before on the sidewalks of New York.
