Deputy Marshal Walter Stroman was shot and killed when he and another marshal went to a local hotel to eject two disorderly men who had been drinking. The marshals had escorted one of the men outside to speak with him. The man suddenly grabbed the gun from the other marshal's holster and opened fire on Marshal Stroman, striking him in the abdomen.

Both men fled the scene but were later arrested by a posse.

Marshal Stroman was survived by his wife and two children.

Marshall Stroman, please know that your memory is alive and well, brother. We are discussing you right now in the Florida State FOP Memorial Committee meeting. I wish I could have there with you that tragic day in 1924. God bless you and your family. It will be my honor to meet you when that day comes, sir.
