Officer William Street was killed when he was struck in the head with an axe as he investigated a disturbance at a home. When he arrived at the home he found it to be occupied by a single man. As he began to leave another man, who had been hidden in a closet, came up from behind and struck him on the head with the axe.

The killer was taken from jail by an angry mob of citizens and lynched.
