Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: IL   USA   Wed. Dec. 24, 1924
Summary: Patrolman William Holmes was shot and fatally wounded while walking his beat with his partner on Christmas Eve.

Officer Holmes was searching for two gunmen who had just robbed a citizen. When Officer Holmes spotted the armed offenders on the street, he attempted to place them under arrest. One gunman resisted, displayed a revolver, and fired. Officer Homes was struck and mortally wounded; his partner was also wounded. Other officers responded and killed the first suspect, however the second suspect escaped.

On June 22, 1925 a murder suspect who had been involved in the killings of lawmen Conrad, Dunigan, and McParlin was hanged in Washington DC. The suspect claimed to have committed 12 murders, including a policeman in Chicago, possibly Officer Holmes.

Patrolman Holmes had been assigned to 2A District and is buried in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery, Bloomington, McLean County, Illinois.
