Deputy David Stewart was shot and killed while attempting to serve a warrant on Island 37 in the Mississippi River.

Several blind tigers and gambling houses were located on the island. Deputy Stewart, who lived on the island, was deputized in order to serve warrants to the operators of the establishments.

The murder occurred when one of the owners snuck up behind Deputy Stewart, who was deaf, and shot him in the back of the head in retaliation for his work as a deputy.

The suspect fled to Arkansas where he was apprehended.
