Officer William C. Carroll, of the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and his partner were in plainclothes driving on Minerva Street. They spotted a man and pulled up next to him and asked the subject for his name, the man complied and gave his name, and then fled on foot. Both Officers then gave chase. As the suspect came around a corner Officer Carroll's partner fired two shots. The second shot from his partner's weapon struck Officer Carroll in the head as he rounded the corner behind the suspect. Officer Carroll was pronounced at the scene at 10:30 AM. He was only 29 years of age.
