Immigration Inspector Lawrence Jones and Immigration Inspector Laurence Doten were shot and killed on a Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railroad train near Emo, Ontario, Canada, while checking passengers who were heading into the United States.

The suspect thought that the two inspectors were going to arrest him and opened fire on them without warning. Both inspectors were killed instantly.

The suspect fled to Fort Frances, Ontario, where he was shot and fatally wounded by a posse twelve hours later.

I'm your Grandson Lawrence C. Jones. My father, who lost you when he was seven months old was so proud of his father, who he did not remember, he named his first born son after you.

I only hope during my life that I have been able to keep the honor of your name. Thank you for your service and for loving my Grandmother who I was also fortunate to love.

I just found this site because my son was in Washington D.C. and wanted me to look up the location of the memorial to fallen officers so he could photograph the name of his great Grandfather.
