Officer Eddie Thomas died while struggling with a male subject in a home on Vine Road. Officer Thomas had responded to the location to assist paramedics with a combative patient who was suffering a diabetic episode due to low blood sugar.

When Officer Thomas arrived at the scene, the patient began to struggle with him. Officer Thomas depressed the emergency button on his radio and was then able to handcuff the man. When backup officers arrived they found Officer Thomas unconscious next to the subject.
