Grover C. Todd

Federal Prohibition Agent Grover Todd and Federal Prohibition Agent Glenn Price were shot and killed during a raid of a dance hall that was serving liquor in Portland, Oregon. During the raid the suspect slipped away to his home and returned with a rifle. When Agent Price attempted to take the rifle away the suspect fought back, gained advantage, and knocked Agent Price to the ground. The suspect then shot Agent Price, killing him instantly. Agent Todd attempted to return fire, but was struck in the head by the suspects fire.

The suspect was wounded and arrested at the scene. He said he thought the agents were robbers and shot them because he feared for his life. He was tried for the murder of each agent and was acquitted at both trials.

Agent Todd was survived by his wife.

Agent Todd,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but also when you served with the ORARNG on active duty with the U.S. Army in the Philippines and later during World War I.
