Patrolman Scudder succumbed to gunshot wounds received three days earlier. He was shot after responding to a disturbance at a local dance hall. As he walked up the stairs he encountered a man coming down. He began to search the man but was shot when the suspect produced a gun.

Five days later the suspect was shot and critically wounded when police attempted to take him from a train in Emporia, Kansas. On July 8, 1924, he was convicted of fourth degree manslaughter and sentenced to two years in prison. He was released March 15, 1926.
