While cruising through the streets of Old Detroit with his partner, Frank Frederickson, they were called to a disturbance alongside Alcott and Duffy. This disturbance turned out to be a naked woman running the streets. After a bit of banter, the lead car occupied by Alcott and Duffy suddenly exploded. Connors and Frederickson went to their aid, finding Duffy dead and Alcott clinging to life. Suddenly, an assault by five shotguns killed Connors.
