Special Agent Asa Hawkins was shot and killed near Maysville, North Carolina, while he and another prohibition agent searched for moonshiners.

The two agents encountered four men, one of whom had escaped from the North Carolina state prison camp the previous year while serving a sentence for second degree murder. A gun battle ensued in which Agent Hawkins was killed and the other agent was wounded.

All four men were arrested and held in connection with Agent Hawkins' murder.

Agent Hawkins was survived by his wife.
