Policeman Frank Corley was shot and killed while investigating the sounds of gunfire behind a pharmacy at the intersection of 12th Street and Hooper Avenue.

Several men were playing a craps game behind the store when an argument ensued. One of the men opened fire, wounding one of the other players. Policeman Corley, who was walking by, ran into the store to investigate when he was shot.

The subject fled the scene but was later apprehended. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was paroled on November 20, 1930.

Policeman Corley was a WWI veteran.
