Patrolman Hinds was shot after responding to a domestic violence call at 1409 Brooklyn Avenue. As Patrolman Hinds and his partner stepped onto the porch of the house the suspect appeared in the doorway. He was wearing a derby hat, smoking a cigar, and held a suitcase in his left hand, his right hand hidden behind his back. As the Patrolman Hinds neared him, he brought out his right hand, which was holding an automatic pistol. He shot Patrolman Hinds once in each leg, and as he fell, he shot him in the back. He then shot his partner in the leg and fled through the back of the house. A group of officers, volunteers, and bloodhounds searched for the suspect, who had got away after shooting the officers. The suspect was apprehended within hours..
Patrolman Hinds had been with the agency for 5 years.
