Deputy Sheriff Lee Flacy was shot and killed while providing security at a polling place in Kansas City, Missouri, in anticipation of violence on election day.

They entered the polling place were directed to the restaurant when they asked where Deputy Flacy was. The men then went to the restaurant and one of the men shot Deputy Flacy in the stomach with a pistol.

Despite being wounded, Deputy Flacy pursued the group out of the restaurant and returned fire, killing one of the men. Another member of the group then fired at Deputy Flacy with a shotgun, killing him.

Deputy Flacy as I sit here in my room at Hotel 816 I reflect on the picture that I read in the hallway concerning your demise. The violence you faced while trying to make it safe for the citizens of KC is so sad yet was seen so often in KC during that era. To is so sad that your wife only had you for 17 days. Thank you for your service. I will toast you tonight with our group as we prepares for the KC St. Patrick's Day Parade.
