After shooting the marshal, the hobos escaped and are believed to have boarded a train for the Twin Cities. Residents heard shots about 3 a.m., but paid little attention to them. Three hours later, the body of the marshal was found near the depot with a shot through his chest. In his hand he clutched an empty revolver.
