Constable Morison was shot and killed as he sat in front of a store and talked to friends. The suspect walked up with a shotgun and shot Constable Morison in the back, killing him. The suspect then entered the store and surrendered to the City Marshal who was inside. It is believed that bootleggers had Constable Morison killed because of his strong enforcement of the law.

The suspect was tried three times and convicted of murder each time. The first time he was sentenced to life, then 35 years, and the third time 25 years. He was released July 12, 1931.

Constable Morison was survived by his wife and two sons.
