Maurice W. Halloran

Deputy City Marshal Maurice Halloran was shot and killed while questioning two suspicious people who had come into a bar at 2000 East Vernon Avenue.

He was already inside the establishment speaking to the bartender when the two men entered and ordered a drink. One of the men took out a pocket knife and started carving something into the top of the bar. Deputy Marshal Halloran confronted the man about the vandalism, prompting the two men to curse at him and then leave.

Deputy Marshal Halloran followed the men outside to talk to them further when one of them shot him multiple times without warning. Both men were arrested a short time later. The man who shot him admitted to the shooting.

Deputy Marshal Halloran was survived by his parents, three brothers, and two sisters.
