Officer Brewster succumbed to injuries sustained approximately 18 hours earlier when he was accidentally shot. He and his partner were on bicycle patrol at approximately 0130 hours when they stopped at a local church at the intersection of Hemphill and West Berry to take their lunch break. As the two were eating they observed a car drive down the street towards a grocery store that had recently been burglarized several times.

The two officers quickly got up and grabbed their coats so they could hurry out the door. As Officer Brewster grabbed his coat he knocked his service revolver out of its holster. The gun struck the floor and discharged. The round struck Officer Brewster in the leg and and traveled to the middle of his back. He was taken to All Saints Hospital where he remained until succumbing to his wound at approximately 1950 that evening.

Officer Bertram had served with the Fort Worth Police Department for 4 years. He was buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery.

I am proud of you cousin. My son now walks in your foot steps. He is a Deputy Sheriff here in Calif. I pray for him and all law enforcement officers. May God bless you all. Rest in peace cousin.
