Police Officer Derrick Lanier was shot and killed while working an overtime assignment at a club at 9600 Madison Ave. Two men whom he had escorted out of the club returned to the scene and opened fire on Officer Lanier.

Officer Lanier attempted to draw his weapon but was shot in the head three times before he had an opportunity to do so.

According to two witnesses, Officer Lanier pushed them to the ground and out of the way of fire as his final act, saving their lives.
