This is from Boxoffice magazine in July 1949:

Jesse Lawrence, owner of the Fox Theater here, suffered a flesh wound in the leg recently when he was helping Police Chief George Aldridge arrest a local welder on a charge of drunkenness.

Aldridge had asked Lawrence to help him place the prisoner in jail. Lawrence suffered a gunshot wound when Aldridge’s gun was discharged during a fight with the prisoner. Scene of the shooting was in front of City Hall, next to the theater.
