Patrolman Pahler was shot and killed by a man who went on a shooting spree with a .22 caliber rifle. The man was in a bank when he got into an argument with bank employees over banking matters and went berserk. He went and got a rifle, shot the bank guard, then went out on the street shooting citizens and Patrolman Pahler who was directing traffic in front of St. Mary's Catholic School. Another officer shot and killed the suspect. Patrolman Pahler succumbed to his wound two days later. Two citizens were killed and eight were wounded.
