Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: WA   USA   Thu. Oct. 13, 1881
Summary: Officer David Sires was shot and killed while patrolling the area of Occidental and Washington Streets. He was attempting to arrest a male who had been kicked out of a saloon. This male then began firing a revolver into the ground. After being shot, Officer Sires was able to identify the suspect before he died.

The male was arrested but while he was waiting for his trial, he was lynched by an angry mob who broke into the jail. During the lynching, Sheriff Louis Wyckoff of the King County Sheriff's Department, suffered a fatal heart attack. He and his deputies had been attacked by the mob and held down while the prisoners were hung.

Officer Sires was the first Seattle police officer to be killed in the line of duty. He had been with his agency for two years and was survived by his wife, two daughters, and six siblings. He is buried at Lake View Cemetery in Seattle.
