Deputy Marshal Ahlers was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a drunk male who had attacked another male at approximately 2300 hours. The victim found Deputy Marshal Ahlers and reported the incident to him. The victim and Deputy Ahlers returned to the restaurant where the attack occurred and waited for the suspect to come out.

When the male exited the restaurant, he began to walk away as the deputy and the victim called out to him. When Deputy Marshal Ahlers told the male he was under arrest, the male suddenly turned and opened fire. Deputy Marshal Ahlers returned fire but was struck in the chest and killed. The suspect fled the scene following the shooting.

Deputy Marshal Ahlers was survived by his wife and two children. He is buried in Weimer Masonic Cemetery in Weimer, Texas.
