Marshal Schultz was shot and killed when he and another officer responded to reports of a man with a gun acting strangely. As the officers attempted to talk to the man a scuffle ensued and Marshal Schultz was shot. The other officer was able to arrest the man and then took Marshal Schultz to town to seek medical treatment.

The suspect was convicted of Marshal Schultz's death and sentenced to death by hanging. He was later released from prison and died when he fell off of a roof.

The second officer involved in the incident was Patrolman Pat Sweeney, who was shot and killed in the line of duty in an unrelated incident on March 30, 1908.

Marshal Schultz was survived by his wife and four children.

Marshal Schultz,

Your serive might have been brief but your work and sacrifices last forever. Things may have changed since 1895 but our mission hasn't. You gave your all and you were loved by your community. I can only hope that you and Patrick were reunited in heaven, along with your wives.

You established the standards to live by, judging by the news article. Walking where you and Patrick have walked, makes me proud of where I live and work.
