Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: George Shissler
  
Location:   Denver, CO   USA   Wed. Mar. 15, 1905
Summary: day, March 12, 1905, George Shissler decided he'd had enough of his neighbor, Key Sill. The two had had a property dispute since 1902, and Shissler was about to end it. He sent his wife and children off to church and then took his shotgun and walked over to Sill's home. After a heated verbal exchange, Sill began to run and Shissler shot and killed him. Shissler then shot at Mrs. Sill through a window and killed her as she tried to escape. He also tried to kill Sill's daughters but they got away.

As an ambulance carrying Captain William Bohanna and Police Surgeon Frank Dulin arrived on the scene at East 39th Avenue and Adams Street, Shissler opened fire, striking them both. Dozens of patrolmen, deputies and armed citizens then surrounded the house, and after 2 hours and a reported 400-500 rounds of ammunition had been fired, authorities entered the house and found Shissler dead.

Two days later, Doctor Dulin died from his wounds, and the following day, Captain Bohanna succumbed.

Never in the young history of Denver had such an event taken place, and the newspapers labeled Shissler a "maniac".

========================================================

Captain Bohanna and Police Surgeon Frank Dulin were shot and killed after responding to a report of a shooting at a residence. The suspect in the shooting had murdered his neighbors after a land dispute spanning several years. As the officers arrived the suspect opened fire, striking both officers. Dozens of officers responded and surrounded the house. After firing several hundred rounds into the home the officers entered it and found the supsect's body. Police Surgeon Dulin succumbed to his injuries two days after being shot and Captain Bohanna succumbed to his injuries three days after the incident.
