Kansas City MO Police Officer, he died one month after being assaulted and beaten in an unprovoked attack outside a saloon. On June 22, Officer Fleming had a run-in with a bar patron earlier in the day. As he walked by "Cockney" Delougherty's Saloon at Third and Gillis Streets, he was jumped by the man, struck in the jaw, and knocked to the ground then beaten with a club on his head until he was unconscious. He was taken home and regained consciousness but died of pneumonia as a result of his injuries.
