Police Officer George Dotson and Officer G. A. Jackson were shot and killed while on foot patrol near the town square.

They encountered a group of five suspicious men near South First Street and Flower Street. A gun battle ensued when the suspects opened fire on the officers with sawed-off shotguns. Both officers were mortally wounded.

The five suspects were eventually apprehended but none were convicted of the murders.

Officer Dotson had served with the Pulaski Police Department for three years. He was survived by his wife and five children.
