Federal Prohibition Agent George Stewart was shot and killed while conducting an investigation of liquor runners in Buffalo, New York.

He had entered a soft drink cabaret at 2:30 am and ordered a beer. After it was serviced to him he got up to leave when he was confronted by a waiter who recognized him as a prohibition agent. As the waiter accosted Agent Stewart in the coat room he produced his gun to defend himself. As he turned to leave he was shot in the back. He attempted to return fire but was shot eight more times and killed.

Agent Stewart had served with the agency for 18 months. He was survived by his wife, son, daughter, mother, and seven siblings.
