Officer George Barker was on medical leave after being shot in the performance of police duties. A few months later, while still recovering from his injuries, Officer Barker was at a restaurant when two armed offenders entered, announcing an armed robbery. When Officer Barker confronted the offenders, a gun battle ensued. Officer Barker was able to prevent the robbery, but was fatally wounded in the exchange.

The suspect was sentenced to prison, where he later died in the 1960s.

Officer Barker was survived by his wife and two children.
