Deputy Amos was shot and killed when he and another deputy responded to a local ranch for reports of two juveniles firing guns. When they arrived they attempted to arrest the two juveniles for killing a hog. As they did so a man concealed in nearby bushes opened fire, striking Deputy Amos in the head.
Deputy Amos had been with the agency for just over six years and was survived by his wife and three daughters.
