City Marshal A. G. Hall

Round Rock Police Department, Texas

End of Watch Tuesday, April 2, 1878

A. G. Hall

Marshal Hall succumbed to wounds sustained one week earlier when he confronted two brothers who were carrying a Winchester rifle at a local saloon.

When Marshal Hall ordered the two to relinquish the rifle, one of the men produced a concealed revolver. Marshal Hall drew his own weapon and exchanged shots with the man. Marshal Hall was shot in the arm, which caused a serious injury. The shootout continued down the street and one of the brothers was wounded. Both were eventually arrested and charged in connection with the incident.

The wound to Marshal Hall's arm was so serious that the arm had to be amputated. It was believed that he would recover from the surgery but he died several days later.

The two brothers were brought before the judge for trial several times. However, each time they were brought before the judge, witnesses failed to appear. Because of this the judge eventually dismissed the case against the two.
