Officer Kidwell was shot and killed while attempting to question a man. He and his probationary officer were talking to a woman whose two male acquaintances had boarded a streetcar. One of the men jumped off of the streetcar and entered a house on Clark Avenue. As the officers followed the man into the home he opened fire on them, striking them both. The officers were taken to a local hospital where Officer Kidwell succumbed to his wounds. The suspect was apprehended the following day and confessed to the murder.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
