Luther McMahill, Jr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1883
Death: 1918

Peace Officer. McMahill was shot and killed when he encountered a group of robbers. He had just finished his shift and was riding his bicycle home when he observed the men. As he shined his flashlight at them the suspects opened fire striking Officer McMahill in the chest. It is thought that the killers may have been the same suspects who shot and killed Colorado Springs, Colorado, Chief of Detectives John Rowan the previous day. Two of the suspects were shot and killed in Los Angeles County, California, following a shootout in which Deputy Michael Van Vliet, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, was shot and killed. Officer McMahill is memorialized at Panel W 54, Line 2 on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, and is also listed on the Colorado Law Enforcement Memorial at Camp George West in Golden.
