Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: MI   USA   Sat. Mar. 08, 1930
Summary: Officer Dayton Winegar was shot and killed while chasing three robbery suspects.

Officer Winegar was on patrol when he observed a youth run out of a haberdashery store at 7313 Jos Campau with an employee running after him. The store owner had been slugged and robbed. As the suspect made his escape along with two other youths in a automobile, Officer Winegar commandeered a citizens vehicle and had the driver pursue as he stood on the running board. In an alley near St. Aubin Street, the suspects abandoned their vehicle and fled on foot with Officer Winegar continuing the pursuit on foot close behind. As Officer Winegar followed the suspects into a near-by grocery store, one of the suspects turned and shot him in the head, killing him instantly.

The suspect, a 17 year-old youth, was arrested at his girl-friends home a few hours later. The other two suspects, ages 16 and 20, were also eventually apprehended.

Officer Winegar's murderer was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life. He was paroled from Jackson State Prison June 23, 1955.

Officer Winegar had served with the Detroit Police Department for six years. He was assigned to the Old Hunt Street Station, (7th Precinct). He was survived by his wife and two sons. Officer Winegar's grandson was a Detroit Police Officer who is now retired. Upon entering the Detroit Police Academy, he was presented with his grandfather's badge which he proudly wore during a very distinguished career.
