Officer Richard Fleming succumbed to injuries sustained one month earlier. He was attacked by the men as he attempted to break up a dog-fighting ring at a saloon at the corner of 3rd Street and Gillis Street.

One of the men took Officer Fleming's club and beat him with it. Officer Fleming remained in critical condition at his home until his death.

Officer Fleming had served with the agency for ten years.
