A group of men had become drunk in the hotel and one of them jumped onto a table and started yelling. As Constable Chalker attempted to arrest the man he was surrounded by the group and then fatally shot. The men then shot the hotel's proprietor before fleeing.

Several of the men were arrested by a posse a short time later.
