Sewall Shot The Sheriff

Sterrett served as Caddo sheriff from the parish's creation until his death in a gunfight with Shreveport merchant Charles Albert Sewall in August, 1840. According to court records, Sterrett had entered Sewall's store on Texas Street demanding payment on a bill for a shipment of paper that Sterrett, a merchant as well as the sheriff, had delivered to him. Sewall claimed the shipment was short and would only pay part of the bill. Sterrett insisted and the encounter took a violent turn. Sewall grabbed a seven-inch knife and threatened the sheriff with it. The sheriff grabbed the knife but Sewall ran to the rear of the store, returning with two cocked pistols, one in each hand.
Witnesses said that Sewall told Sterrett he was trespassing and ordered him out but Sheriff Sterrett hurled a Bowie knife at Sewall, just missing him. Sewall fired, killing Sheriff Sterrett instantly. Sewall was indicted in state court for the murder of the sheriff and was released on $20,000 bond collected by friends and relatives, a staggering sum in those days when one dollar had approximately the buying power of twenty dollars today.
Sewall claimed self-defense and numerous witnesses who had seen the altercation unfold from the street and the porch of Porter's Hotel agreed. Two attempts at convicting Sewall ended in mistrials and a third resulted in the dismissal of the case in 1841. Sewall was released and lived as a free man and respectable Shreveport merchant for another five years until he died. http://www.caddohistory.com/about_sheriffs.html.3
