Police Officer Glenn Williams succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained several days earlier as he and the city's police chief searched for a suspect who had threatened another officer with a firearm. As the two inspected a parked automobile at a service station the suspect, who was hiding in the vehicle's backseat, opened fire, striking Officer Williams.

Both officers returned fire, wounding the suspect. The suspect was sent to state prison where he was later shot and killed while attempting to escape.

Officer Williams had served with the Yuba City Police Department for one year. He was survived by his wife and son.
