Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   Bluff Springs, FL   USA   Wed. Jul. 03, 1895
Summary: Sheriff E.S. McMillan was shot and killed as he and a posse searched for a notorious train robber nicknamed "Railroad Bill." In 1893, Railroad Bill had shot and wounded a deputy sheriff who confronted him about not paying taxes on his weapon. He then fled and spent the next two years illegally riding Alabama freighters, robbing trains, and engaging in gun fights with lawmen.

In July of 1895, Sheriff McMillan received a tip that Railroad Bill was hiding out in Bluff Springs, Florida, and went with a posse to arrest him. As Sheriff McMillan walked along the railroad tracks, the suspect, who was hiding behind a tree, opened fire with a Winchester rifle. Sheriff McMillan was struck in the back and succumbed to his wounds a short time later.

After a long manhunt, Railroad Bill was tracked down to a store near Brewton and fatally shot by a local Constable.
