Deputy Sheriff Curtis Ahl was shot and killed while riding with a posse in an attempt to arrest a man who had murdered Officer Joseph Flanders, of Swainsboro Police Department in Georgia, four days earlier.

The posse had located the suspect in his mother's yard and attempted to arrest him. As Deputy Ahl rode up to the suspect on his horse the man stepped out of the way and then shot him in the back as he rode past him.

The suspect was able to escape from the area and fled to Alabama. He remained at large until being shot and killed by officers in Andalusia, Alabama, while resisting arrest in March 1903.
