Special Agent Harry Elliott was shot and killed near Oskaloosa, Iowa, after he and another agent stopped a man suspected of transporting liquor.

The man had been convicted of bootlegging twice before. As Special Agent Elliott looked into the back of the car the subject exited the vehicle and opened fire, striking him in the back and neck. Special Agent Elliott's partner was shot five times but none of the wounds were considered serious.

The man who murdered him committed suicide when a posse cornered him in a hay field the following day.
