Deputy Edward Byrne was shot and killed while responding to a robbery call at a local tavern.

Upon his arrival, he stopped a vehicle that was leaving the tavern and had returned to his patrol car when he was shot by one of its occupants. Deputy Byrne was known for wearing his campaign hat and as he sat in his patrol car, it was thought that the brim of his hat did not permit him to observe the suspects' movement outside when he was shot.

Deputy Byrne had served with the Marion County Sheriff's Department for only nine months.
