Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: CO   USA   Thu. Jun. 25, 1896
Summary: Officer Bish was shot and killed while checking an alley in downtown Colorado Springs. During his check he observed two men he believed to be burglarizing nearby businesses. Officer Bish found a revolver in one of the men's pockets and began to escort them out of the alley and towards the police station. The other man then pulled out a concealed handgun from under his coat and shot Officer Bish once in the chest. Although mortally wounded, Officer Bish was able to return fire while laying on the ground. A posse was formed shortly after the incident to search for the suspects. One of the suspects had committed suicide shortly after the incident and the other was arrested and spent the rest of his life in jail
