Patrolman Shaumeyer succumbed to injuries sustained when he fell off of a railroad bridge while investigating reports of a car parked on the Frisco Railroad tracks. He and his partner met a railroad special agent at the railroad yards and then went to the location of the vehicle. After determining that the vehicle was located in the county, outside of the city limits, Patrolman Shaumeyer started to return to his patrol car to alert county authorities.

As he walked back to his car he slipped on railroad tracks and fell approximately 20 feet to the ice-covered Turkey Creek. He was transported to Providence Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries two days later.

Patrolman Shaumeyer was survived by his wife and three children.
