    December 10, 1993
    In the early morning hours of December 10, 1993, Officer Chris Clites responded to a call for assistance from another officer who reported fleeing suspects from a routine traffic stop at St. Clair and Bonham Avenues. Officer Clites had joined two other officers in searching for the suspects when he was confronted by one of the perpetrators. Gunfire was exchanged and Officer Clites shot the suspect once in the chest before suffering a gunshot wound to the head. Officer John Holloway, who witnessed the shooting, also fired upon the suspect, who died at the scene.

    It was later discovered that the fleeing individuals had robbed a convenience store earlier that day and were driving a stolen vehicle.
