When he arrived on the scene, Schulte saw a man running from the store. The officer chased the man through two alleys and across Hamilton Avenue before struggling in a dark corridor between two buildings. Sherrer got Schulte's metal nightstick and started hitting him in the head with it. The officer drew his gun and fired six times, killing Sherrer.
