Deputy Marshal Metcalf was shot and killed in Harlan County, Kentucky, when he was ambushed by a man seeking revenge as he conducted a prohibition raid. The suspect had been shot by officers during a raid one year earlier.

Two of Deputy Marshal Metcalf's sons and his brother were assisting in the raid. One of his sons was also wounded in the incident.

The other deputy marshals returned fire and wounded the suspect.
