William D. McCalib

End of Watch

January 7, 1930

Inspector William D. McCalib was shot and killed after he and Inspector Buck West arrested a suspected illegal alien in Alice, Texas. Claiming to be a legal citizen, they returned to confirm at the restaurant where he was employed. As Inspector West interviewed the restaurant owner, McCalib remained in the patrol car where the suspect produced a concealed pistol and shot Inspector McCalib in the back of the head. Inspector West shot the suspect three times in a gun battle.
