Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Thu. Feb. 14, 1918
Summary: Detective Adolphus Biggers succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained one week earlier in the railroad yards in downtown Toledo, Ohio, while attempting to arrest a thief.

He and his uncle, who was also a railroad detective, were notified that a man had been spotted breaking into a rail car. When the detectives arrived at the location they found evidence of the break-in but could not locate the suspect. As they prepared to leave they spotted the stolen merchandise hidden under a wooden platform.

Both detectives waited nearby for the suspect to return to retrieve the merchandise. A few minutes later the man returned and began loading a sack with the items. When the detectives approached him he immediately pulled out a gun and opened fire, striking Detective Biggers in the abdomen.

Despite being mortally wounded, Detective Biggers returned fire and struck the suspect. The man fled but was shot again by the other detective during a second exchange of gunfire.

Detective Biggers was taken to a local hospital where he remained until passing away several days later.

Detective Biggers had served with the Toledo, St. Louis and Western Railroad Police Department, RR for three years.
