Fatal Incident Summary
Thu. Jul. 19, 1923
Sergeant Harrison was shot and killed while investigating reports of a stolen car. Sergeant Harrison was the agency's desk officer and received a call at 0430 hours by a citizen claiming that his car had been stolen and was heading towards the police station. Sergeant Harrison had a fireman watch the desk and went outside to intercept the car. Several minutes later shots were fired and the fireman found Sergeant Harrison's body.
The suspects abandoned the stolen vehicle and fled. The two men were arrested in 1927 but acquitted at trial due to a lack of evidence. The suspects were found guilty of several burglaries and sentenced to a long prison term.
Sergeant Harrison had been with the agency for 10 years.
