Chief Powell was shot and killed by the former police chief during an argument about an officer.
During the argument Chief Powell pinned the former chief to the ground. The man then drew his revolver and shot Chief Powell.
The suspect was sentenced to two years for the murder but was pardoned by the governor at the request of one of the man's friends.
Five years later the suspect shot and killed the same friend and was sentenced to death for that murder. He was executed in 1924.
