BALTIMORE CITY POLICE SERGEANT
SHOT AND KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY

On Christmas Eve 1964 there was a liquor store holdup in the 2000 block of Greenmount Ave. where a police Lt. was shot and wounded as he struggled with one of the suspects. The manhunt for that shooter was still on in the early morning hours of Christmas Day. Sgt. Cooper met with his officers at approximately 4:45 AM and gave them descriptions of the two assailants. Shortly thereafter Sgt. Cooper stopped a man in the 2600 block of Kennedy Ave. and demanded identification. unknown to Sgt. Cooper was the fact that he had just stopped the gunman in the liquor store holdup the prior evening. Sgt. Cooper was using the police radio to run a check on the man. As he exited his patrol car the man produced a handgun and shot Sgt. Cooper three times. Responding backup officers who were close enough to hear the shots found Sgt. Cooper laying 10 feet from the door of his patrol car. The suspect's wallet was laying next to Sgt. Cooper's body and the suspect's drivers license was laying on the floor of the patrol car. The suspect was later apprehended & convicted. Sgt. Cooper had 17 years of service with the police department and was survived by his wife and two daughters.
