Sergeant Warren was shot when he and a Portland City detective went to a hotel in downtown Portland searching for an ex-con they wanted to question regarding a burglary.

When they found the suspect and attempted to take him into custody two of his friends burst into the room. All three were taken into custody and Sergeant Warren was holding them while the Portland Detective left to phone for a paddy wagon. One of the three had a hidden gun and shot Sergeant Warren in the neck. Sergeant Warren died five months later of a meningitis infection directly linked to the gunshot wound.

Sergeant Warren had been with the agency for seven years.

Thank you for remembering Ira. My 94 year old Grandmother is his niece and we have never forgotten. And I am his great-great niece and I am also a public servant (though not the front lines). I will never forget and wish I could have shaken his hand.
