Marshal Charles Connelly was shot and killed during a bank robbery by the Dalton gang. He was responding to the sounds of gunfire between the gang and citizens during the robbery. As he ran into the street he was shot and killed. He was able to return fire and kill the suspect. Three citizens were also killed during the shootout.

Almost one year later, on September 1, 1893, members of the same gang were also involved in the murders of Special Deputy Marshal Richard Speed, Deputy Marshal Thomas Hueston, and Deputy Marshal Lafayette Shadley, during a shootout in Ingalls, Oklahoma. One of the suspects was shot and killed and the other was taken into custody.

Marshal Connelly served with the Union Army 9th Indiana Light Artillery during the Civil War and is buried in Mount Hope Cemtery, Independence, Montgomery County, Kansas.
