Fatal Incident Summary
Wed. Sep. 25, 1907
Night Watchman Fred Stone succumbed to injuries sustained the previous night when his service revolver accidentally discharged. Watchman Stone and the city's deputy constable were in the local railroad yards observing three suspicious tramps.
In an effort to sneak up on the men, Watchman Stone was crawling beneath a railroad car. As he did so his service revolver dropped from its holster and discharged, with the round striking him in the chest.
A doctor was called to the location and he was immediately put on a train for Elko. He was taken to Bolling Hospital where he died the following day.
Watchman Stone had served with the Carlin Police Department for only six months. He was survived by his wife and seven children.
