My partner and I advised Fred and his partner of the ongoing situation as we got off shift as 3C6 and Fred began his shift as 1C6. We had failed to locate the suspect twice prior to Fred and the morning crew locating and cornering him. I have often thought about that night in the past 38 years. I went on to complete my 25 yrs of service and retired, if only Fred could have done the same.
