Patrolman Fisher succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained three days earlier after he responded to reports of a man with a gun at a local tavern.

Patrolman Fisher and another patrolman approached the man and asked him to step outside so they could talk. The man suddenly jumped up and produced a gun. Patrolman Fisher's partner tried to grab the man from behind, but the man turned and pointed the gun at him. As he did so, Patrolman Fisher opened fire, wounding the suspect. The man then opened fire, and struck Patrolman Fisher and a bystander. Both officers returned fire, and killed the suspect. The bystander died at the scene as well. Patrolman Fisher was transported to a local hospital where he died three days later.

Patrolman Fisher had served with the Wellston Police Department for 24 years. He was survived by his wife and four children.
