Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: LA   USA   Mon. Sep. 06, 1948
Summary: Detective Jacob was shot and killed as he and his partner transported a prisoner back to New Orleans from Gulfport, Mississippi. The suspect had been arrested in Gulfport for another crime. An accomplice in Louisiana filed a false report which would require the New Orleans police to extradite the suspect back to Louisiana. The accomplice went with the officers to pickup the suspect. When the suspect was released from Gulfport custody a .45 caliber handgun was returned to him by the Gulfport police.

The suspect and the accomplice rode in the back seat of the police car and during the ride the suspect handed the gun to the accomplice, who then shot Detective Jacob in the back of the head. When they dumped his body on a side road the other detective made an escape as the suspects shot at him.

Both suspects were captured the next day in Galvez, Louisiana. The suspect who killed Detective Jacob was convicted of first degree murder and executed in the electric chair on January 26, 1951.
