Captain Creeden died as the result of a fall. He and two other officers went to the train station in order to apprehend several suspects for whom they had arrest warrants.

He succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter at a hospital.

Captain Creeden had served in law enforcement for 18 years. He was survived by his wife and six children.
