Railroad Detective S.W. Everson was killed when he was thrown from a fast moving train near Bell Buckle, Tennessee, when he attempted to break up a fight involving members of a group of workmen on their way to Shelbyville. Three men were arrested and charged with his murder.

One week later, at the conclusion of their preliminary hearing, a mob of twenty men opened fire on the suspects as they were being escorted by deputies from the Bedford County Court House in Shelbyville. One suspect was killed and the other two were badly wounded.
