Patrolman Baldwin was escorting a detained suspected burglar, Adam Wallace, back to the scene of the crime for identification purposes. When at the vicinity of 18th St. & Eddy Alley the suspect grabbed Officer Baldwin's gun and fatally shot him. Officer Michael Sullivan and Officer John Keefe were waiting on Baldwin at the scene of the burglary at 18th & Walnut Streets. Hearing the gunfire the two officers ran toward Eddy Alley. They confronted the fleeing gunman who immediately began firing the gun at Officer Sullivan. Officer Sullivan returned fire hitting the man fatally in the head.
Officer Baldwin's funeral was held at St. Louis Bertrand church. A detail of police acted as pall-bearers and escort.
