Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: AL   USA   Sat. Apr. 13, 1895
Summary: Deputy Foster was shot and killed by a suspect he was attempting to arrest for theft.

Deputy Foster two other deputies who had an arrest warrant for the arrest of the suspect, on the charge of stealing chickens, went to his mother-in-law's house where the suspect was thought to be. The house was between one and two miles north of Rodgersville. They arrived at the house near midnight and on demanding admittance, the suspect's mother-in-law said he was not home. They told her they would search the house, and after some parleying they entered. Upon entering the house, Deputy Foster struck a match, holding it over his head to see.

At this point, the suspect shot the deputy with a musket at close range, the load of shot striking him in the side. The deputy fell and the suspect rushed out of the house and escaped in the darkness, followed by a number of shots by the deputies. Deputy Foster walked a few feet and fell dead.

Deputy Foster had been specially deputized to arrest the theft suspect.

This photograph of Deputy Foster as a child is the only photograph of him known to exist.
