John McGee

Deputy Sheriff John McGee was shot and killed after arresting a man at a dance in the Calvert's Quarters area of Hammond.

Deputy McGee had been assigned to keep order at the dance and arrested a man who had started a disturbance. As they walked to the jail the man pulled away from him and drew a revolver. Deputy McGee shot the subject in the leg as a crowd gathered around them as they stood in front of a house. A man in the house fired out of his door, striking Deputy McGee.

Both subjects were arrested by responding officers.
