Private Carroll Garrison was shot and killed by a homeowner who mistook him for a burglary while investigating a burglary at 10:00 pm. A neighbor had called the police to report a burglary at the home in the 6500 block of Medwick Drive in Chillum.

The home had been burglarized the previous week and the homeowner grabbed a shotgun when he heard Private Garrison outside. The man fire a shot through the back door, striking Private Garrison. The homeowner was then involved in a 30-minute shootout with responding police units before being taken into custody.

He was convicted of second degree murder but the charge was thrown out the following year on appeal and was remanded to the lower court.
