Patrolman Donald Brown succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained three days earlier while responding to a domestic disturbance at the home of a man fighting with his wife. As soon as Patrolman Brown and two other officers arrived, the man opened fire with a shotgun wounding all three officers. One of the officers returned fire wounding the suspect.

The suspect was convicted of Patrolman Brown's murder and sentenced to life in prison on May 28th, 1963. He was paroled on October 7th, 1982.
