Summary: Deputy William Maxwell was shot and killed during a shootout in the White Mountains. He was riding with a posse that was tracking the Bill Smith Gang. Deputy Maxwell and Ranger Carlos Tafolla, of the Arizona Rangers, were approaching the gang when one of the gang asked how should they surrender. As the suspect was approaching them he was dragging his rifle behind him and brought it up and shot Deputy Maxwell in the head, killing him instantly.
