Officer Hagan succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained one week earlier while attempting to question a burglary suspect. Officer Hagan was on mounted patrol near the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Dennis Street when he spotted a group of men in an alley. He dismounted his horse and, as he approached the group, was shot by one of the men. Officer Hagan was able to return fire three times but did not strike the suspects.
