E. C. Garrison

Deputy Marshal Garrison was shot and killed from ambush in Telfair County, Georgia, while attending a Christmas Eve ceremony at a local church. Two men were hiding behind the doors of the church and as Deputy Marshal Garrison exited they opened fire on him, killing him.

Deputy Marshal Garrison had participated in an arrest several years earlier in which a suspect was killed. Deputy Marshal Garrison's murder was in retaliation for that case.
