Patrolman Michael Walsh was shot and killed while investigating a burglary.

During the investigation another burglary occurred on a nearby beat. Patrolman Walsh and a second patrolman continued searching the current establishment while keeping an eye out for any suspicious people walking their way. Patrolman Walsh noticed two men and when he approached them, one pulled out a pistol and shot him in the head.

The two suspects then fled the scene.

Patrolman Walsh had served with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for ten years.
