Policeman Robert Murray was shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call at 129 Carr Drive.

A female occupant of the home and a male friend had ordered a third man away from the residence because the woman did not like him. 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.

Policeman Murray had served with the Los Angeles Police Department for only five weeks. He was survived by his wife.
