Marshal Albert Suverkrubbe succumbed to a gunshot wound suffered ten days earlier when he was shot as he interrupted two men during a burglary.

Marshal Suverkrubbe observed the men tampering with an oil tank in the Mobile and Ohio Railroad yards at approximately 0300 hours and then followed them into town. When he observed the two men attempt to break into a business he fired two warning shots at them.

The men were surprised by the shots and fled towards their car. A citizen, awakened by the shots, woke up and came to Marshal Suverkrubbe's assistance. As the two approached the suspects' car, one of the suspects opened fire with a .45 caliber rifle, striking Marshal Suverkrubbe in the abdomen. He was taken to Covenant Hospital in Omaha where he died.

Marshal Suverkrubbe was a WWI veteran. He had served as Fort Calhoun's marshal and night watchman for 2 years. He was survived by his wife, two sons, seven brothers, and two sisters.
