Policeman David Brooks, a plainclothes policeman, was shot and killed by one of two robbery suspects who attempted to hold him up.

He was on his way to investigate the robbery of a saloon which had been held up, presumably, by the same men. When ordered to put his hands up, he was shot as he reached for his revolver. The suspects escaped.
