Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: IL   USA   Fri. Feb. 14, 1936
Summary: Patrolman Anton Cramer succumbed to wounds suffered one month earlier after he and four other officers went to a man's home to arrest him for robbery.

Three of the officers woke the man and his wife up in their room. As the suspect put on a pair of shoes the wife suddenly slammed the door separating the two from the officers. When the door was reopened the man opened fire, wounding Patrolman Cramer. He then exited the room holding his wife in front of him as a shield. Other officers eventually returned fire, killing the suspect.

Patrolman Cramer had served with the Rock Island Police Department for seven years.
