and Deputy Sherriff Ted "Sid" Moore and Deputy Sheriff Chet Ainsworth were shot and killed by two brothers in Tombstone, Arizona. The two brothers ambushed Deputy Ainsworth and Deputy Moore, who was assisting him, as they waited outside of a home to speak with them about stolen cattle.

The outlaws escaped to New Mexico but a posse from Tombstone chased them and captured them. Both suspects were executed by hanging in November 1900.

Deputy Sheriff Moore,
On today, the 114th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Deputy Sheriff for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Cochise County. It took another year but your murderers finally got the justice that they deserved.
