Officer McDonald was shot and killed by a man holding another man hostage in a local market.
A few days earlier a wealthy retired banker, answering a knock at his door, suddenly found himself at the mercy of a man standing there with a gun. For the next few days the suspect marched his victim from bank to bank forcing him to withdraw funds. As they went into a market to get some food the victim saw Officer McDonald coming toward them and shouted, "Get that man he's got a gun", and then started running at the same time. Officer McDonald drew his gun as the suspect drew his and shot him three times.
The suspect ran from the market and engaged in a gun battle with two officers on Mission Street near 8th Street where he was shot to death.
Officer McDonald was survived by his six children.
