Immigration Officer Marshall Jackson was shot and killed with his own service weapon while escorting a prisoner from Winnipeg to the United States-Canada border to hand him over to U.S. officers.

He and the prisoner were aboard a train, approximately two miles from Windsor, Ontario, when the prisoner struck him over the head with his manacles. He then grabbed Officer Jackson's service weapon and fatally shot him before jumping from the train.

The subject remained at large for several days before being arrested.

Marshal Jackson had served with the Dominion government for four years and had previously served as a law enforcement officer in North Dakota for 20 years. He was survived by his wife, two sons, and two daughters.
