Pope Gray

Deputy Sheriff Pope Gray was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a man wanted on a warrant for illegally selling liquor.

The warrant had been issued two years earlier. Deputy Gray deputized two brothers to assist him after learning that the suspect passed a certain location twice a week. When the man approached with another man Deputy Gray informed him he was under arrest. The two men suddenly uncovered Winchester rifles and opened fire, killing Deputy Gray.

Deputy Gray was survived by his wife and two young children.
