Peter Fromm

Patrolman Fromm succumbed to a gunshot wound received 14 months earlier while attempting to arrest two men. During the arrest he was attacked, stabbed, and sprayed with his own mace. While he was on the ground one of the suspects gained control of his revolver and shot him in the groin. He never recovered from the wound and died 14 months later. The suspects were originally convicted of shooting to kill and were never charged with murder because Patrolman Fromm died more then one year after the shooting.
Patrolman Fromm was survived by his parents.
