Assistant City Marshal Thomas Moad was killed when he attempted to quiet some drunken cowboys creating a disturbance at the Manison House, a local brothel. Moad's killer, 25 year old Howard H. Doughty, escaped to Mexico, but was subsequently captured.

Moad was the first El Paso police officer to die in the line of duty. He had served as a private in Company C of the Frontier Nattaloin of the Texas Rangers before joining the El Paso Police Department. His last name has previously been incorrectly reported as "Mode."
