Deputy Marshal Pinkney Bough was shot and killed while attempting to arrest two subjects at the Oolitic Movie Theater.

Deputy Marshal Bough had asked the subjects to move their illegally parked car. When they refused, Deputy Marshal Bough told them if they did not move their car they would be arrested. When the subjects still refused, Deputy Marshal Bough attempted to arrest them. One suspect drew a gun and shot and killed Deputy Marshal Bough.

Both suspects were arrested the next day. They were both convicted of murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
