Deputy Marshal John Pemberton was shot and killed in Oklahoma while trying to arrest a man who had assaulted another marshal.

Deputy Marshal Pemberton was part of a posse that was attempting to arrest the suspect. The posse was confronted by a large group of people who attempted to prevent the arrest. A shootout ensued in which Deputy Marshal Pemberton was killed and another deputy marshal was wounded.

Four men were arrested and tried for his murder. All four were found not guilty because no one could testify that they had seen them fire at the marshal.
