Officer Johnny Reed Annas

Age: 25
Tour of Duty: Two Years
Weapon Used: Pistol



On May 21, 1960, Officer Annas and his partner were trying to break up a street fight between two men at the corner of South Church Street and West Summit Avenue. A large crowd had gathered to watch the fight. While Officer Annas went back to the patrol car to radio for assistance, the other officer was assaulted by members of the crowd. As Officer Annas rushed to assist his partner, a member of the crowd grabbed the officer's service weapon and shot the 25 year old Annas, fatally wounding him.
