Chief Hagaman was shot and killed while conducting a liquor raid at the Blue Goose barbecue stand on Blowing Rock Road.

Chief Hagaman and a deputy sheriff had just located 22 pints of whiskey when the 21 year old attendant produced a pistol and shot Chief Hagaman twice. The deputy returned fire, slightly wounding the suspect and took him into custody. Chief Hagaman was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds 5 days later.

The suspect was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to 30 years in prison.
