Policeman Harry Daugherty succumbed to wounds sustained three days earlier when he was attacked by a man with a chisel. Policeman Daugherty had gone to a home on Paper Street to investigate reports of a disturbance. While inside he was attacked by the suspect and stabbed in the temple with a chisel.

The suspect was apprehended the following morning after a manhunt involving over 1,000 citizens. He was taken to the Baltimore City Jail by state police officers to prevent him from being lynched by citizens.

Policeman Daugherty was survived by his wife and seven children.
