Chief Guthrie Diuguid was shot and killed after responding to a disturbance call. He was shot by one of three suspects he encountered on a city street. The suspect fled the scene but was captured later by a railroad conductor in Paris, Tennessee.

The shooting sparked two nights of rioting in Murray with a mob threatening to lynch the suspect. The suspect was convicted of murder and executed in the electric chair on July 25, 1919.

Chief Diuguid died of his wounds the following day.
