Officer Andrew Grimes was shot and killed by a hack driver in front of the Texas and Pacific Railroad Station.

Officer Grimes was attempting to get the hack driver to comply with a city ordinance on where hacks could stand at the passenger station. Words were exchanged and the man pulled out a .45 caliber handgun and exchanged shots with Officer Grimes, who was struck once in the abdomen.

The suspect was not wounded and was apprehended by other officers. He was subsequently sentenced to two years in jail.

Officer Grimes had served with the agency for two years and was survived by his son. He is buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Fort Worth, Texas.

Andy Grimes was my great grandfather. We knew very little about him until about 7 years ago. Through research on the internet we have found out so much more about him. My grandfather talked very little about him as he was 13 when his father died. It has been a pleasure to find out more about him and I am so proud of his service to the Ft. Worth PD. And so on the 114th anniversary of his EOW, I honor him through this reflection!
