Sergeant Joseph Jenning succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained 20 years earlier while attempting to arrest a man at 6th Street and Center Avenue, NW, at about 7:00 pm.

During the arrest the two began to struggle and the suspect gained control of Sergeant Jenning's weapon. The man shot him several times, including a shot which severed his spinal column and left him paralyzed.
