How close is this game to Mafia/Werwolf

Hi all,
I'm currently working on a social deduction game with a few of my friends.

It is set in the old west, where all the characters are staying in a saloon when a prestigious rail baron is murdered in the establishment.

Or will the Murderer and his accomplices eliminate the Sheriff before word gets out, and you get uncovered.
