Patrolman Theodore Boynton succumbed to gunshot wounds received five days earlier while attempting to stop a robbery on a city bus. He was in uniform riding to work when a juvenile boarded the bus and pointed a gun at the driver. Patrolman Boynton jumped out of his seat and started struggling with the suspect. They both fell through the open doors and into the street. Patrolman Boynton struck his head on the curb and became stunned. The suspect then shot him three times and fled the scene but was apprehended a short time later.

Patrolman Boynton had been with the agency for three years and had previously served as a Sergeant with the United States Marine Corps. He is buried in the San Antonio National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas.
