Deputy City Marshal White succumbed to a gunshot wound received six days earlier when he was ambushed by the family of a man he had just arrested.

Marshal White had traveled to Arlington, Texas, with a man who claimed he owned a horse that had been sold illegally by another man. While in Arlington, Marshal White arrested the man for selling the horse and began back towards Fort Worth. During the horse ride the man's family ambushed them, striking Deputy Marshal with a shotgun blast.

The suspect was apprehended and sentenced to five years. The conviction was eventually overturned on an appeal due to a technicality regarding Deputy Marshal White being sworn in.
