Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: FL   USA   Sun. Oct. 01, 1876
Summary: Marshal Williams was shot and killed in October, 1875, by an off-duty Orange County Sheriff's deputy who was drunk at a town gathering. The deputy was one of the louder party-goers and Marshal Williams attempted to quiet him down. The deputy was upset that another law officer did not respect him and shot him as Marshal Williams attempted to stop him on his horse from leaving. The suspect ultimately escaped and was never captured. Marshal Williams succumbed to his gunshot wounds in January, 1876. The exact dates of the incident and his death are unknown.

Marshal Williams had only been elected to Town Marshal two months prior to the incident. He was survived by his wife and three children.
