Daniel Weiser

Constable Daniel Weiser was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a suspect on a warrant for disturbing police.

Constable Weiser and his son went to a home where the man was and attempted to arrest him. Several of the man's family members attempted to calm the man, who claimed he wouldn't be taken alive. During the arrest the officers exchanged shots with him and Constable Weiser was fatally wounded.

After murdering Constable Weiser the suspect fled to Cowley County, Kansas, where he later shot and killed Sheriff Albert Shenneman. An angry mob took the suspect from jail and hung him off of a railroad bridge for murdering the Sheriff.
