The prisoner they were taking into custody pointed out one of his accomplices nearby and Patrolman Forbish immediately approached the man. The suspect suddenly produced a handgun and opened fire, mortally wounding Patrolman Forbish, who died the next morning.
The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and hanged on December 23, 1927.
