Officer Alfred Jordan was shot and killed when he encountered a man known to be involved with smuggling illegal liquor.

Officer Jordan was returning from the local railroad station after conducting an inspection for illegal liquor when the encounter occurred.

After exchanging words, the suspect produced a handgun and shot Officer Jordan several times. Despite being mortally wounded, Officer Jordan was able to return fire and wounded the suspect. The man was taken into custody by responding officers and charged with murder.

The 23-year-old suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to 10 years. He was pardoned on December 23, 1916.

Officer Jordan had only worked for the Ranger Police Department for 3 days, but had previously served as a Texas Ranger.
