Several minutes later Patrolman Murray arrived at the home to investigate the disturbance. As he approached the home the woman's friend fired from an upstairs window, striking him.

Policeman Murray was transported to Receiving Hospital where he died the following day. The man who shot him was arrested and charged with murder.
