Officer Larry Minard was killed when booby-trapped briefcase with three sticks of dynamite exploded at a house at Ohio and North 28th Streets.

The briefcase was found on the floor of a vacant house and exploded as Officer Minard attempted to move it. Seven other officers were injured in the incident.

Two suspects, members of the Black Panthers, had lured the officers there with a 911 call. Both were convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. On March 12, 2016, one was found dead in his cell at the Nebraska State Penitentiary. The other suspect remains in prison.

Officer Minard had served with the agency for seven years. He was survived by his wife and five children.
