Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Sun. Nov. 06, 1983
Summary: Patrolman Becker was shot and killed while investigating reports of a suspicious person near a bar on State Route 170 at 0120 hours. Patrolman Becker was on patrol when he pulled into the bar parking lot. A patron then told him of a suspicious man in the rear of the bar. Patrolman Becker started checking the area on foot but walked past the suspect without seeing him because of the darkness. When Patrolman Becker was about 20-feet away from the man the original complainant yelled out that the man was behind him. When Patrolman Becker turned around he was shot in the chest with a 12-gauge shotgun.

The suspect then fled the scene. Patrolman Becker was transported to South Side Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds approximately one hour later. The suspect fled to Winchester, Virginia, where he committed suicide the following day.

Patrolman Becker was survived by his wife, son and daughter.
