Edward W. Marpool

Sergeant Edward Marpool responded to a citizen complaint of two men with guns and encountered two suspicious men near an alley near the intersection of Hamburg Street (modern-day Fullerton Avenue) and Western Avenue.

One of the men suddenly drew a revolver and fired, killing Sergeant Marpool.

Over 300 officers cordoned off a section of the city while searching for the suspects. The man subsequently was engaged in four different shootouts with officers and he was eventually shot and killed.
