Deputy Nick Bodkin was shot and killed as he and another deputy attempted to breakup a disturbance at a local saloon across the street from the Covington police station.

A Covington policeman had become intoxicated and started a quarrel with two patrons of the saloon. As Deputy Bodkin and the other deputy attempted to separate the group, the policeman pulled out his gun and opened fire, fatally wounding Deputy Bodkin and wounding the second deputy.

The policeman was arrested and charged with murder.
