Patrolman Fleming was shot and killed while chasing a suspect who had just murdered a citizen during a robbery shortly after 2300 hours. During the foot pursuit the suspect turned and shot Patrolman Fleming in the chest with a .25 caliber handgun. Patrolman Fleming was able to continue the pursuit and, with the help of a citizen, place the suspect in custody. Patrolman Fleming then collapsed and died at the scene. The suspect had just been released after serving one year of a fifteen year sentence for a previous strong arm robbery.
Patrolman Fleming had been with the agency for 18 months and was survived by his wife and two children.
