Marshal Thomas Radford was shot and killed by a suspect who was upset that the marshal had shut down one of his rooming houses. The house was used as an establishment of ill repute. The suspect became even more enraged when Marshal Radford stopped a second home from being opened. As Marshal Radford was warming himself up in a saloon during a cold day the man walked in, approached him, and fired a round into his chest. Marshal Radford began to run from the building but was shot twice more. The suspect was arrested and sentenced to 25 years.

Marshal Radford had been marshal for only nine months and was buried in Enid Cemetery.
