Deputy Durrance was shot and killed while searching for the murderer of Sheriff Perry Hall three days earlier. Deputy Durrance had received information the suspect may be in Greenland, Florida, and was conducting a stakeout. Deputy Durrance observed a man fitting the suspect's description and ordered him to raise his hands. The man raised a shotgun and exchanged shots with Deputy Durrance. Both men were struck.
The man who shot Deputy Durrance was not the suspect in Sheriff Hall's murder. He was a night watchman hired to protect the local post office. He was killed several weeks later while awaiting trial for Deputy Durrance's murder.
