Officer Schoppe was shot and killed by a man at the Cozey Saloon on Oak Street. He was standing outside when he heard a shot and saw the proprietress running from her saloon shouting to him that a man inside had just shot at her. As soon as he entered the saloon the man shot him in the chest. Officer Schoppe clubbed the suspect knocking him unconscious. Other officers entered the saloon to find Officer Schoppe lying dead on top of the suspect.

Two weeks later the suspect was convicted of Officer Schoppe's murder and sentenced to 99 years in prison.
