Chief Goodwin was shot and killed by the night chief, who held a grudge against the chief for beating him in the election for chief. Chief Goodwin was walking down the street with another officer when they were met by the night chief. The man produced his gun and shot both officers, killing Chief Goodwin and wounding the other officer.

Chief Goodwin had served with the Chickasha Police Department for 10 years. He was survived by his wife and seven children.

Thank you, Chief Goodwin, for your service. What a tragedy this was for our family, but I will continue to pass down your story to the next generation.
