Town Marshal Amos Brown died two days after being shot on Main Street when a man he was reprimanding, for making insulting remarks to a young woman, suddenly drew a revolver and shot him.

The suspect was apprehended in Newcastle, Colorado, on July 27, 1910.

Marshal Brown had served with the Fairbury Police Department for 11 years and had been appointed to the position after Chief William Baird was shot and killed in the line of duty in 1899.
