Constable Will Dalton was shot and killed as he and several officers attempted to arrest two robbery suspects from Missouri at a residence near Garfield, Arkansas.

Officer Edgar Wright of the Pierce City Police Department, Missouri, died two days later from wounds received in the same gun battle.

One of the suspects was shot and killed and the other captured when they mistakenly jumped into a boxcar containing 30 posse members sent to arrest them while they attempted to escape.
