Prohibition Officer Everett Adams was shot and killed by four men who had held a grudge against him due to his work as a prohibition officer.

Officer Adams was walking along a road in the Harts section of Logan County when he was accosted. One of the men held him at gunpoint as a second disarmed him. The armed man then opened fire on him, striking him four times as he attempted to flee.

He was taken to a nearby house where he succumbed to his wounds the following day.

Officer Adams had served with the West Virginia Department of Prohibition for only a few months. He was survived by his wife, three children, and six siblings.
