Officer with the Rawlins Police Department.

Frank J. Keefe had long been a terror to his friends because of his known disposition to deeds of violence when drinking. After several arrests, Keefe cherished a feeling of hatred for the officers who had arrested him. On April 20, 1903, Keefe went to the Keefe's Commercial Company store. He took down and loaded two rifles of the smokeless powder pattern. Two shots were fired in the store. Officer John Baxter and Lieutenant King responded to the store. As they entered the store, Keefe fired two shots in rapid succession killing both officers.
