Officer Greiner was shot and mortally wounded as he investigated a complaint of a man discharging a firearm at the corner of Huntingdon Avenue and 27th Street.

As he stepped out of his cruiser the man shot him. Other officers arriving on the scene arrested the suspect. Officer Greiner and the suspect, who was injured during the arrest, were transported to Union Memorial Hospital where Officer Greiner slipped into a coma and died ten days later.

As he was being guarded by two officers the suspect grabbed one of the officer's service revolver and shot and seriously wounded him. The other officer returned fire seriously wounding the suspect.
