   Deputy Constable William Carey was shot and killed by a traveling evangelist known as ''Cyclone Johnson.'' The evangelist had a history of assaulting people who disagreed with the way he preached.

   Deputy Carey arrested the subject for assault and battery and escorted him to a nearby livery stable for trial. As a crowd of people gathered the subject produced a pistol and shot Deputy Carey twice in the chest. An unknown citizen returned fire killing the subject.
