Marshal Bryant was shot and killed during a struggle with a suspect at approximately 1400 hours. The two men fell down a staircase and the suspect was able to gain control of Marshal Bryant's service revolver. The suspect then shot Marshal Bryant several times.

An angry lynched the suspect and three other people in retaliation for Marshal Bryant's murder.

Marshal Bryant had served as marshal for only two years and had also been a Dade County deputy sheriff and an officer in Blakely, Georgia.
