Deputy Sheriff Robert Lockwood was shot and killed during an escape attempt from the Grant County Jail.

As he opened the cell door of a prisoner he was shot in the head by a second prisoner. The prisoner was able to obtain a gun from the jail office because he was not normally confined to a cell.

The man was arrested, convicted of the murder, and later hung.
