Deputy Game Warden James Claxton was shot and killed in Carroll County as he and two other wardens served a warrant on a man for using a double wing net in violation of state game laws.When the wardens entered the man's house boat he picked up a double barreled shotgun and pointed it at the officers. Warden Claxton opened fire on the man, missing but wounding his son. The subject fired his shotgun, striking Warden Claxton. Despite being mortally wounded, Warden Claxton returned fire and seriously wounded the subject.Deputy Claxton was survived by his wife, two young children, and mother.
