Captain Garry Mullen and Superintendent James Reynolds were shot and killed by another policeman who had been disciplined and suspended from the force several times.

The officer was waiting in the superintendent's office when he suddenly jumped up and started firing his revolver, killing Superintendent Reynolds.

The suspect, who was Captain Mullen's cousin, then yelled that Captain Mullen had shot the chief. As Captain Mullen ran up the stairs towards the commotion, he encountered another officer who shot him. The officer who killed Superintendent Reynolds was eventually subdued and committed to the East Louisiana Hospital for the Insane where he later died.

Captain Mullen was survived by his wife and four daughters.
