During the arrest, one of the men shot him, knocking him to the ground. A second suspect then took Deputy Wilson's gun and shot him in the chest a second time. Deputy Wilson survived long enough to identify the suspects and give an account of the incident.

Deputy Sheriff Wilson,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe during World War I as a member of the 34th “Red Bull” Division which the 109th Field Signal Battalion was a part of. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
