Deputy Harold Amick was shot while searching for chicken thieves. He was shot once in the head when he encountered several unrelated suspects who were wanted in the shooting of Patrolman John Pfaffenburger, of the Seymour Police Department earlier in the day. Deputy Amick succumbed to his wounds the following day.

Both suspects were apprehended and convicted of Deputy Amick's murder. One offender was sentenced to life in prison and the shooter was sentenced to death. On October 9, 1934, he was executed by electrocution.

Deputy Amick had served with the Scott County Sheriff's Department for four years. He was survived by his wife.
