Patrolman Bryant was shot and killed while investigating a hit and run accident. Patrolman Bryant had located the suspect and was shot when he was attempting to arrest him.

His body was found under a pile of leaves in the front yard of a house with six gunshot wounds. He had been shot once in the head with his own .45 caliber handgun which was stolen by the suspect. The other five shots were from the suspect's .22 caliber weapon. His patrol car was located on the street approximately a mile away.

The suspect was found to be in the United States illegally from Mexico and was later found incompetent to stand trial. He was deported to an institution in Mexico.
