Officer Hissong suffered a fatal attack during a foot pursuit of a vandalism suspect. Officer Hissong had responded to a local hotel after receiving reports of vandalism. When he arrived at the hotel he was taken to the rear of the hotel where the vandalism had taken place.

Officer Hissong located the suspect prior to the arrival of backup officers. He pursued the suspect on foot for approximately 150 feet, at which point he caught the suspect but immediately collapsed on top of the man. Responding officers located Officer Hissong and immediately started CPR. He was transported to St. Agnes Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
