Deputy Collector James Davis was shot and killed from ambush near Ben Lomond Mountain, outside of McMinnville, Tennessee.

He and several other officers were riding through the area when several men opened fire on him, shooting him several times. The other officers were able to return fire but the subjects escaped over the mountain.

Deputy Collector Davis had been threatened several times for his work against moonshiners, and had been severely wounded one year earlier.
