John Zoller

Marshal John Zoller succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained several weeks earlier when he confronted two burglars. He was on foot patrol when he encountered the two men coming out of the back of a business.

The two men immediately opened fire on him, causing a serious wound. Despite the wound, he was able to return fire and shot one of the suspects twice. The wound Marshal Zoller suffered caused him to be paralyzed. He was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital, in Portland, where he remained until succumbing to his wounds.

The suspect who Marshal Zoller shot turned himself in at the Salem Police Department the following day.

Marshal Zoller was survived by his wife and 12 children.
