Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Sat. Nov. 07, 1964
Summary: Investigator James Burns was shot and killed by a Xenia police officer who mistook him for an armed suspect. Investigator Burns and an aide were conducting surveillance at a Xenia night club and followed a group of 16 people who had left the club, believing they were heading to a location serving bootlegged alcohol. The group walked to a nearby home on Main Street to attend a private party.

When Investigator Burns entered the home he was told to leave by the homeowner. When he refused to leave the residents blocked his exit as they called the local police, not knowing that he was an undercover agent. When the homeowner walked into a different room Investigator Burns followed him. A struggle ensued between the two men and Investigator Burns' service weapon fell to the floor. As the two struggled for it the weapon discharged, fatally striking the homeowner in the head.

A Xenia officer was just arriving at the home when the shot was fired and he entered the home with his gun drawn. He observed Investigator Burns holding his service weapon and ordered him to drop it. When he did not immediately drop it the officer opened fire, striking him in the chest.
