Constable William Campbell was shot and killed by the notorious outlaw gang led by Bonnie and Clyde. The Chief of Police was also shot and wounded in the incident.

Constable Campbell was survived by his daughter and is buried in Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery, Miami, Ottawa County, Oklahoma.

The Bonnie and Clyde Gang was responsible for the murder of law enforcement officers in four states - Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas - between 1932 and 1934. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow started their criminal career by robbing banks and quickly became notorious murderers wanted for the murders of nine law enforcement officers.

The two criminals were finally shot and killed in Louisiana when they were ambushed by a task force of Texas and Louisiana officers.
