Garrett Willis Hull

Corporal Garrett Hull succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained the previous night as he and other members of the Criminal Intelligence Unit attempted to apprehend three armed robbery suspects.

The officers had been conducting surveillance of the three suspects, who had been involved in more than 15 armed robberies in which three people were shot. The suspects entered a bar on the 400 block of West Biddison Street shortly before midnight and robbed the ten patrons at gunpoint. As they fled from the building, the officers attempted to take them into custody.

All three suspects attempted to flee on foot into the surrounding neighborhood. During the foot pursuit, one of the men opened fire, striking Corporal Hull in the head. Other officers returned fire and killed the subject before placing Corporal Hull in a patrol car and transporting him to a hospital.

The other two suspects were apprehended nearby. One suspect was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Corporal Hull succumbed to his wounds the following evening.

Corporal Hull had served with the Fort Worth Police Department for 17 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

He was posthumously promoted to the rank of corporal.
