On February 9, 1924, Patrolman William Morgan Payton was killed while trying to arrest Richard “Chester” McLendon. Richard McLendon resisted an effort by Patrolman Payton to place him under arrest during an encounter. Patrolman Payton struggled with McLendon, but subsequently killed by a bullet, fired by McLendon, which struck Officer Payton’s head. McLendon used Patrolman Payton’s pistol to commit the slaying, which he claimed was accidentally discharged during the struggle.
