Deputy Scott was shot and killed with his own weapon after being attacked. Deputy Scott was standing on a depot platform near the present-day Highway 231 overpass when a man appeared and walked past him several times. At one point the man stopped and began a verbal argument with Deputy Scott. The suspect then grabbed Deputy Scott's revolver from its holster, struck him in the face with it, and then shot him in the abdomen. Deputy Scott succumbed to his wounds several minutes later. The suspect was apprehended and charged with murder.
