I don't know what you made of that, but it was a close thing.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

By 1907, Sheriff Palmer is clearly overwhelmed. Armadillo is constantly under assault from gangs and a recent cholera outbreak has dwindled the population, making it a town of lawlessness.

Upon arriving in Armadillo, the player can come across the sheriff being cornered at his office by some Del Lobo Gang members. If the player intervenes, Palmer will thank them and announce his resignation, leaving his official paperwork inside the office. He then departs in the direction of Blackwater.

If Palmer is not assisted in time and the encounter plays out, he is promptly shot dead by the outlaws, who then leave town.
