Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info

Summary: Patrolman Charles Houser was shot and killed as he took position outside the farmhouse of two suspects.

THE INCIDENT

========================

On June 2, 1929 Marshal Noe attempted to stop the two suspects from driving while intoxicated. When Marshal Noe informed the men they would have to go to jail to "sleep it off", one suspect shot him. He was pulled into the suspects car where he was shot several more times.

Marshal Noe's body was discovered the next morning in a roadside ditch, several miles outside of town.

Two brothers, considered local petty burglars, killed a total of seven Law Enforcement Officers. After they killed Town Marshal Mark Noe on June 2, 1929, a massive manhunt began for the suspects.

The two suspects were located at the family farmhouse on January 2, 1932. They had come to town to visit their mother for the Christmas holiday. A raiding party of eleven officers was formed to arrest the two brothers. As the officers surrounded the farmhouse, gunfire erupted and in the end six officers lay dead.

The suspects escaped, and fled to Texas. They were located there by Houston Police and as police moved in, the two suspects committed suicide.
