Game Warden Frank Floyd was shot and killed while trying to arrest several hunters, illegally hunting at night, on a plantation 17 miles south of Walterboro.

Warden Floyd, Warden Thomas Goethe (Warden Floyd's nephew) and the plantation superintendent were approaching the group of hunters when one of the hunters produced a double barrel shotgun and shot Warden Floyd in the chest at close range. Warden Goethe returned fire, striking the suspect once in the head.

Warden Floyd was rushed to the Colleton County Hospital were he was pronounced dead. The suspect recovered from his wound and plead guilty and was sentenced to life.

Warden Floyd had served with the agency for seven years. He was survived by his wife and child.
