Federal Prohibition Agent Joseph Owen succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained two weeks earlier in a shootout with moonshiners near Kosciusko, Mississippi.

The agents were ambushed while raiding a still and Agent Owen was critically wounded. The other agents were able to return fire and wounded the two brothers who operated the still. Both were arrested and charged with murder.
