John and Parker Morgan were deputized to arrest three men who were wanted fugitives from Limestone County. When the two Morgan brothers went to a house in Bosque County to make the arrest they were both shot and killed. One of the unnamed suspects was badly wounded and later his leg had to be amputated. A second suspect named Crowell was arrested in June of 1875 in Polk County. No information was found on the third suspect.
