Event Description
On October 12, 1965, Patrolman Thomas R. Graham, 38, was shot and killed by Nathaniel Harris, a burglary suspect whom Graham was transporting to police headquarters from a northside business where Harris had been arrested.  At 6:51 p.m. Graham marked out of service at police headquarters at 50 North Alabama Street.  As Graham escorted Harris to the prisoners' elevator in the basement of headquarters, a struggle ensued and Harris gained control of the patrolman's revolver.  Harris shot and fatally wounded Graham.
