Policeman Reinheimer was shot and killed by a man he had just taken into custody.

Policeman Reinheimer had been called to the house by the sister-in-law of the man when he produced the handgun and began waving it around. Policeman Reinheimer had taken one handgun from the suspect, but the man pulled out a second handgun and shot him six times. The suspect was arrested a short time later after a shootout with other officers.

The 23-year-old suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life.

Policeman Reinheimer was a WWI veteran. He was survived by his wife and three sons.
