Detective Ring was shot and killed while assisting two railroad policemen who were investigating the robbery of several boxcars. The officers went to the home of one of the suspects but were told to leave when they knocked on the door. Detective Ring was shot with a .44 caliber revolver as he attempted to look through a window into the home. One of the suspects committed suicide and the other was apprehended a short time later.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 96 years.

Rest In Peace
