Deputy Compier and Officer Weldon Wilson, of the Wetumka Police Department, were shot and killed while transporting a man to jail. They had just arrested the man for illegally selling whiskey. The man was able to gain control of Officer Wilson's revolver and shoot both officers.

It is believed the suspect spent nearly 20 years in an institution after the shooting. He died in 1971.

Deputy Compier had been with the agency for five years and was survived by his wife.
