Patrolman James Green and Patrolman Edward Miner were shot and killed after being ambushed.

Four officers had responded to the home of a man who was reported to be intoxicated. Upon entering the house they found that they were in an ambush. The suspect had placed a lamp in the middle of the room and hid in the shadows. When the four officers entered he opened fire with a shotgun, fatally wounding Patrolman Green and Patrolman Miner. The other two officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

Patrolman Green had served with the Rock Island Police Department for three years.
