Marshal Lafayette Hampton was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man suspected of stealing merchandise from a local store.

He was shot as he pursued the man, who fled with two companions, on the outskirts of town. His body was found by a posse when he failed to return.

One suspect was apprehended in Nampa three weeks later. The other two are at large.

Marshal Hampton had only served with the Shelley Police Department for 17 days. He was survived by his wife and two children.
