Deputy Sheriff Charles Slaughter was shot and killed when he, another deputy, and a citizen went to a home to arrest a man for possessing illegal firearms.

As the men attempted to make the arrest two of the suspects opened fire, killing Deputy Slaughter and the citizen. The other deputy returned fire, wounding of the suspects. The two shooters were apprehended and hung three months later.

Deputy Slaughter also served as the marshal for the town of Archer. He was survived by his wife and two young children.
