Deputy Elliott was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a bootlegging suspect.

Deputy Elliott and another deputy were raiding a still 8 to 10 miles west of Double Springs. The deputies had been watching two men operate the distillery in the woods and decided to arrest them. They ran each in a different direction, a deputy following each man.

Deputy Elliott captured his man, a struggle ensued, and the bootlegger got possession of his gun and killed him with it.

Deputy Elliott was survived by his expectant wife, three sons, and five daughters. His fourth son was born five months later.
