Patrolman Gomenginger was shot and killed while responding to a disturbance involving an intoxicated man. A citizen had flagged down Patrolman Gomenginger for assistance after the man had discharged his revolver toward a crowd of people in the street. Patrolman Gomenginger responded to the scene and tracked the suspect to a nearby boarding house. As soon as Patrolman Gomenginger entered the house and confronted the suspect, the suspect opened fire, killing him instantly.

The suspect was arrested and convicted of first degree manslaughter. He died in prison after serving 12 years of a life sentence.

Patrolman Gomenginger had served with the Rochester Police Department for 5 years. He was survived by his wife and at least 4 children, and he is interred in the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Rochester.
