Marshal Morgan was shot and killed by a U.S. deputy marshal who he had arrested for disorderly conduct two days earlier. The U.S. deputy marshal was upset about the arrest and obtained an arrest warrant for Marshal Morgan under false pretences. When he went to serve the warrant the two exchanged shots and Marshal Morgan was fatally wounded. The U.S. deputy marshal was also shot and killed.
Marshal Morgan had been with the agency for eight years and was survived by his wife and three children.
