Deputy Sheriff Jeff Williams was shot and killed by a man he arrested for robbery at a home seven miles south of Senatobia. Just after the officer made the arrest the suspect grabbed Deputy Williams' pistol and shot him.

Deputy Williams' father, the Tate County Sheriff, organized a posse of more than 75 men who surrounded a nearby home where the suspect was thought to be hiding. When someone in the house opened fire the posse returned fire killing four men inside the home. The men, a father, his two sons, and his son-in-law were relatives of the suspect. The suspect was not there. He was captured in Memphis, Tennesee, December 13, 1932.
