Patrolman Ezra Foreman was shot and killed and his partner was slightly wounded while responding to a domestic disturbance call involving a man and his wife.

As they approached the couples' home, the man opened fire with a shotgun through a screen door. The suspect surrendered after several other officers fired tear gas into the home.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. In 1966 a federal court reversed his conviction. As a result of his second trial he pled guilty to manslaughter.
