Officer Massey was shot and killed by a man who refused to pay a $2.00 fine imposed by the court. As the man turned to walk out of the court Officer Massey put his hand on the man's shoulder. The suspect suddenly turned and shot Officer Massey in the chest. As Officer Massey stumbled away he was shot again in the back. Other officers immediately began to struggle with the suspect, who was able to wound another officer before being taken into custody. Officer Massey succumbed to his wounds the following day.

Officer Massey was survived by his wife and child. An emergency session of the city council appropriated $1,000 for support his widow.
