Assistant Marshal Thomas Nixon was shot and killed while on foot patrol. He was ambushed and shot by a former assistant marshal with whom he had a long standing feud.

The suspect was acquitted of murder charges in 1885, but reportedly killed in Texas in 1886.

Assistant Marshal Nixon had served with the agency for 11 years. He was buried in a cemetery at Dodge City Kansas which no longer exists.
