By J. Davis McNamara | September 20, 1985

In a tragic turn of events, Question Mark Police Officer Ron Dublowski was killed in the line of duty yesterday during an attempted robbery at the newly-opened Question Mart convenience store.

Officer Dublowski, known affectionately as "Big Ron" among his colleagues, had stopped at the store to pick up donuts for the late shift. In a twist of fate, he found himself locked out of his police car, a mishap that, according to anonymous sources within the QMPD, was not entirely uncommon for him.

While struggling with the car door, Officer Dublowski unexpectedly encountered the armed robber as he was backing out of the store. In an attempt to intervene and disarm the assailant, a struggle ensued, during which the robber's gun discharged, fatally wounding Officer Dublowski.

The assailant fled the scene and remains at large, with eyewitnesses providing conflicting descriptions of his appearance. The police have launched a full-scale manhunt and are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect.

The community of Question Mark is in mourning over the loss of Officer Dublowski, a respected and beloved member of the police force. His bravery and commitment to duty in his final moments are a testament to his character and dedication to serving the community.
