Andrew Sperr, known as "A.J.," was a State Trooper in New York. He was assigned to Troop E. He served 10 years for the Police Force, dying in the line of duty at age 33. Trooper Sperr had stopped a vehicle for a traffic infraction, not knowing they had just robbed a Bank. As he approached the vehicle, two suspects inside opened fire. He was struck several times. In spite of being mortally wounded, he was able to return fire, striking both suspects. Both suspects fled that location. One was apprehended at a local hospital, where he was recieving medical treatment for gunshot wounds. The second suspect was apprehended after fleeing to a local motel and then calling police for medical aid. Both suspects were charged with aggrivated murder and first degree murder. The suspect who shot Trooper Sperr was convicted on all charges, and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Trooper Sperr was survived by his parents, four brothers, and six sisters.
