Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: MI   USA   Sun. Jun. 01, 1930
Summary: Patrolman Lanstra and Patrolman Erhardt Meyer were shot and killed by the driver of a vehicle wanted for hit-and-run. The two had been investigating the accident and had just left the police station when other officers heard several shots fired. The officers responded to the scene and found Patrolman Lanstra on the ground and Patrolman Meyer still in the patrol car, both mortally wounded.

The responding officers spotted the vehicle and exchanged shots with it when they tried to stop it. Both suspects were apprehended. One later died in prison and the second was acquitted after receiving a new trial.

Patrolman Lanstra had been with the agency for one year. He was survived by his brother, who served as the police chief for St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
