Deputy Marshal Howard Wilson was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a suspect in Menifee County, Kentucky.

He and another deputy marshal had gone in search of a man who was wanted on a warrant. They located him in Mariba walking with another man and two girls. When the marshals rode up behind them they announced themselves, the suspect pulled the two girls in front of him and opened fire.

Deputy Marshal Wilson was shot and knocked off his horse. The other marshal returned fire, shooting both men.

Deputy Marshal Wilson was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.
