He and two other officers entered the restaurant and Policeman Howard sat down across from one of the persons involved and began speaking to him. The man suddenly fired a pistol underneath the table and struck Policeman Howard in the left leg, severing a large artery. One of the officers immediately struck the suspect with his night stick and took him into custody. Policeman Howard bled to death within a few minutes.
