Patrolman Stone was killed while apprehending a trespasser in the railroad depot.

Patrolman Stone and Patrolman W. Walker came on duty at midnight and patrolled the railroad depot in their first rounds of the night. During their patrol, they encountered a trespasser. Patrolman Stone attempted to arrest the man when the suspect pulled a Colt .45 pistol and emptied the weapon into the officer. Two shots entered Stone’s abdomen, three in the fleshy portion of his legs and one passed through his lower lip.

Patrolman Walker returned fire and killed the suspect.

Patrolman Stone was survived by his wife and two children.
