Sheriff Lockhart was stabbed to death after telling several men to stop gambling. As he started to walk away one of the men ran up behind him, reached around to his front and began stabbing him with a butcher knife. The suspect was arrested by a deputy in Williamson County and returned to Llano County.

Sheriff Lockhart had been sheriff for only two years. A granite dome near where he was killed was named Lockhart Mountain in his honor.

He was survived by his wife, daughter, and other children.
