Sergeant Perrin was shot and killed when he attempted to arrest five men as they were leaving an alleged bootlegging establishment. When he ordered them to halt one of the men turned and shot him. Four suspects were taken into custody a short time later.

The shooter and his three companions were convicted of Sergeant Perrin's murder and sentenced to life. A year later the fifth suspect was apprehended in Chicago.

Sergeant Perrin had received the agency's Distinguished Service Award only two months before his murder. He had served with the Detroit Police Department for 3 years.
