Deputy Marshal Armes was shot and killed near Topeka, Kansas, while attempting to serve a writ on a man wanted for mail robbery and resisting a marshal. Deputy Marshal Armes and the man argued in the suspect's home. When Deputy Marshal Armes told the man to come with him he was shot in the neck. The suspect turned himself in and was later acquitted of the murder.
