Marshal George Reddick was shot and killed while confronting two burglary suspects. The suspects had just attempted to rob a gas station but were thwarted by the owner. The owner then ran to Marshal Reddick's home to get assistance. Marshal Reddick approached the suspects at a second gas station where they shot him.

The suspects, a man and a woman, were apprehended minutes later by a Ellis County deputy sheriff when they ran out of gas after a short chase. On April 6, 1933, the 24 year- old man was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life. His companion was found guilty of manslaughter.

Marshal Reddick had been with the agency for 11 months and was survived by his wife, two sons, and three daughters.
