Deputy Charlie Ramsey succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained 10 days earlier while investigating a disturbance in Mt. Vernon.

A soldier, who was home on furlough, became involved in an argument on a public street. A third man walked up and took sides against the soldier.

As Deputy Ramsey approached the group, the third man suddenly pulled out a .32 caliber revolver, shot the soldier, and then shot Deputy Ramsey. Despite being wounded, Deputy Ramsey was able to subdue the suspect.

Deputy Ramsey was taken to a hospital in London, Kentucky, where he underwent surgery. It was believed he would recover from the wound, however, he contracted pneumonia and died as a result.

Deputy Ramsey was survived by his mother, five sisters, and three brothers.
