Stephen Mann

Marshal Mann was shot and killed when he interrupted a burglary in progress at a local business. One of the two men inside opened fire with a shotgun, striking Marshal Mann twice. Before he died, Marshal Mann disabled his assailant's car by shooting the motor. A large-scale manhunt combed the countryside, and a posse of businessmen and farmers captured the two near Deer Creek the night of the shooting. The shooter was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. His sentence was subsequently modified to life in prison. His accomplice was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Marshal Mann had served with the Medford Police Department for 2 months. He was survived by his wife and two children.
