Policeman Lon Robinson was shot and killed as he and a United States deputy marshal attempted serving a search warrant on a man for possessing liquor.

A handgun and a bottle of whiskey were taken from the suspect, and as they walked him from the house, he pulled out a second handgun and opened fire. Policeman Robinson was struck in the chest and killed, and the deputy marshal was struck in the leg and wounded. The deputy marshal was able to return fire, and seriously wounded the suspect.
