Police Officer Cooper, assigned to the Front & Westmoreland Station, was off-duty in his residence when he heard a series of gunshots. Several minutes earlier, five masked offenders had robbed the Olney Bank at Rising Sun and Wyoming Avenues. Officer Cooper ran from his house in pursuit of the offenders who were fleeing on a stolen horse-drawn milk wagon. Officer Cooper boarded a passing truck and followed them in an attempt to make an arrest. They exchanged gunfire, and Officer Cooper was shot and killed.
