Marshal Brewster was shot and killed after arresting a suspicious man near a local bank. While on patrol Marshal Brewster noticed a vehicle parked in an alley behind the bank and went to investigate. He found a large amount of ammunition and firearms in the vehicle and confiscated it and placed it in Town Hall. When Marshal Brewster returned to impound the car he encountered the owner. As he attempted to place the man in custody the suspect produced a gun and shot Marshal Brewster in the lung, killing him.
