Officer Huddleston was shot and killed while he and another Officer were investigating a woman's screams on Washington Street.

Unbeknownst to the Officer, a recent parolee had just broken into the home and was threatening the woman with a knife. When the two officers split up, the second officer confronted the suspect and lost his gun in the ensuing struggle.

As Officer Huddleston was running to the aid of the 2nd Officer, with a flashlight, the suspect shot in the direction of the light, striking him in the chest. The Officer died enroute to the hospital of hemorrhaging of the heart and lungs.

After a manhunt and several more shootouts, the suspect was apprehended and sentenced to life in prison.

Officer Huddleston of 4642 Vernon Ave. was the son of W.J. and Anna (nee Harrison) Huddleston.

Burial was held at the New Florence Cemetery in Montgomery County on November 18Th, 1912.
