Constable Dallas Hodges was shot and killed while attempting to question two men. Constable Hodges had stopped the men and shown them his badge when they opened fire on him. Two months later the two suspects shot and killed Deputy Reuben Coleman, of the Grayson County Sheriff's Department, as he attempted to arrest them for Constable Hodges' murder.

One of the suspects was subsequently murdered by another outlaw.

Constable Hodges had been with the agency for 2 years. He was survived by his wife and nine children.

I am married to John Dallas Hodges, the great nephew of Constable Dallas Hodges. Of course, he has always been just "Dallas" to family and friends. Before we were married 35 years ago, I heard the story of Constable Dallas Hodges and his unfortunate demise from Dallas' family. Thanks to all that have posted here.
