Officer William Gaskin was shot and killed while making a traffic stop. He had radioed to dispatch that he was making the stop and was found by other officers suffering from a gunshot wound. He was still holding the suspect's driver's license when he was found.

The suspect was committed to a mental institution where he was stabbed to death two years later.
