Sheriff Doc Anderson was shot and killed when he responded to a disturbance call at a saloon in Sanderson.

He was warned that a suspect inside was armed but the sheriff did not think the man was a threat. As he entered the saloon the suspect shot him three times, killing him. The suspect was shot and killed a few minutes later by a constable when he stepped outside.

Sheriff Anderson had been with the agency for three years and had also served as a U.S. Customs inspector.
