American policeman who was called in on 1/3/1979, when the gas company attempted to shut off the gas of a Negro resident, Eula Love. She refused and hit the gas man with a shovel. The police were called by the gas company, and when they arrived, Love brandished a kitchen knife. Responding to the threat, 24-year-old O'Callaghan discharged his firearm and shot her dead. Despite public outcry, he was exonerated.
He resigned from the force 16 months later, on 5/27/1980, and wrote about the experience in his autobiography, "The Other Side Of The Gun."
He had originally graduated from the Police Academy April, 1975.
