On June 9, 1930, Officer Frye was on duty checking businesses. He found the front door of 417 S. College St. unlocked and went inside to investigate. As Officer Frye shined his flashlight inside the establishment, the suspect opened fire and struck Frye five times. Officer Frye was later transported to Mercy Hospital where he died from his injuries. Frye was 44 years old.
