Patrolman Samuel Cooper succumbed to an infection from gunshot wounds suffered one week earlier when he was attempting to arrest an armed robbery suspect. After being shot, Patrolman Cooper returned fire and wounded the suspect.
The suspect was convicted of Patrolman Cooper's murder and sentenced to life in prison on June 21, 1901. However, he served only 10 years of the sentence, being pardoned by Governor Thomas Marshall in 1911.
