Constable Tom Campbell was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a father and son who were wanted on a bench warrant.

Both subjects had previously threatened Constable Campbell's life if he attempted to arrest them. Constable Campbell encountered the men walking in the street on election day and, as he began to read the warrant to the son, the father approached and shot him multiple time, killing him.

The father was arrested and subsequently convicted of murdering Constable Campbell and sentenced to life.

Constable Campbell was survived by his wife.
