Deputy Sheriff Serapio Andrade was shot and killed while transporting several men to jail after having arrested them for creating a disturbance in Del Rio.

The men had been drinking and started firing the revolvers in town. Deputy Andrade placed them under arrest and started transporting them to jail in a hack when the men shot him.

One of the subjects was subdued by a citizen at the scene. The other four were arrested by a posse while hiding on railroad property a short time later.

Deputy Andrade was survived by his wife and seven children.
