Lieutenant Garnet Richmond was shot and killed when he and another officer responded to a domestic disturbance at a downtown restaurant. A man who had been arguing with his wife shot Lieutenant Richmond once in the head as the officers walked up to him sitting in his car. The other officer returned fire wounding the suspect.

A week later the suspect suffered critical injuries when he leaped from his hospital room's third floor window. He died a month later.
