Circumstances

At approximately 0130 hours May 28, 1955 Constable Paul was seated in the Inco Hotel talking to the night cook. A 22 year old deranged miner entered and began firing a .22 caliber revolver at the officer point blank, killing Constable Paul.


The youth subsequently shot and wounded two civilians and died shortly after being taken to the hospital with a self-inflicted head wound.
