William Mclnerny, a desperate criminal with a long record, made a
break for liberty shortly after his arrest to-day by jumping through an
open window in the identification bureau of Police Headquarters. He

Mclnerny down with a bullet through the left shoulder.
No such excitement has been seen about Headquarters since the
building was opened. The spectacular attempt at escape happened just
