Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: GA   USA   Sat. Jul. 17, 1897
Summary: Police Officer Robert Albert succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained four days earlier while attempting to question two suspicious men on Broad Street. When he asked what the men were doing they responded by saying "none of your business." The two then began walking down a set of stairs to a railroad yard. As Officer Albert followed them one of them turned and opened fire, striking the officer.

Despite being mortally wounded, he returned fire five times but did not strike the suspects.

Officer Albert was taken to Grady Hospital where he remained in very serious condition until succumbing to his wounds.

The gunman was arrested and convicted of Officer Albert's murder. He was awarded a new trial by special order of the court and released.

Officer Albert had served with the Atlanta Police Department for four years. He was survived by his wife and young daughter.
