Deputy Marshal Layman was shot and killed by a suspect who had been upset that the deputy had disarmed him. Deputy Marshal Layman and one of his deputies were traveling with three prisoners in the Choctaw Nation and had setup camp near a home.

The owner of the home, along with Deputy Marshal Layman and three other men, crossed into Texas to attend a wedding. When they returned to the camp two of the men became engaged in an argument. Deputy Marshal Layman disarmed the two, who then left the area. They returned with weapons and shot Deputy Marshal Layman several times, killing him.

The suspect was convicted of manslaughter.
