Officer Thrower was shot and killed while speaking with a person outside of a dance hall. A suspect approached the two, started arguing with Officer Thrower, and then shot him four times.

The suspect was the same suspect who had murdered Officer J.A. Mansfield on November 20, 1912. He was acquitted of Officer Mansfield's murder.

After five trials he was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to three years in prison.
