Marshal Ambrose Wilson was shot and killed while attempting to break up a disturbance at a local saloon. He had taken one of the men outside and was attempting to persuade him to go home when the man produced a gun and opened fire, striking Marshal Wilson three times.

The marshal was taken inside the saloon where he died several minutes later. The suspect was arrested at his home later that night.

Marshal Wilson was survived by his fiancee. He was killed the week prior to his wedding.
