Policeman Arthur Crusey succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained three days earlier when he was shot at the intersection of Commercial Street and Main Street. He was attempting to capture a man who was attempting to break into a pawn shop to steal a bicycle.

The suspect also shot and wounded a Deputy Sheriff Arthur Solomon, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, who came to the aid of Policeman Crusey. Deputy Solomon succumbed to his wounds six years later.

The suspect was apprehended within a perimeter immediately after the shooting and taken into custody. He was convicted of Policeman Crusey's murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Policeman Crusey had served with the Los Angeles Police Department for only three months and was, at the time, the youngest officer in the department. He was survived by his wife.
