Here’s the story from the LA Times.

The bodies of a deputy city marshal and his helper – shot and killed by George Farley as they tried to serve an eviction notice on him – lie in front of a barricaded home. They were Deputy Marshal T. Dwight Crittenden and Leon W. Romer, both 60.

Farley, 55, was wounded five times and captured after police stormed the house. He was later convicted of two counts of manslaughter and ordered to serve 10 to 20 years in San Quentin State Prison.

Here’s the street today. Seems like the area became an industrial district. It’s weird to see a few single family homes left, must be old people.
