Agent William Stewart was shot and killed as he and members of the Woodward Police Department conducted a narcotics operation at a local chain restaurant. Agent Stewart and one of the detectives approached the suspect, who was sitting in a van parked in the parking lot. As the three talked the man fired a 12 gauge shotgun, killing Agent Stewart and wounding the detective.

The suspect fled the scene and buried the shotgun. He was arrested a short time later and the murder weapon was recovered. The man was convicted of Agent Stewart's murder and sentenced to life in prison. He has a parole hearing in November of 2016.

Agent Stewart is survived by three daughters and a granddaughter.
