Deputy Douglas was shot and killed after responding to reports of a man brandishing a pistol in Nome. When Deputy Douglas arrived he placed his hand on the man's shoulder and told him he was under arrest. The man responded by striking Deputy Douglas in the face and pulling out his gun. Deputy Douglas shot the suspect in the chest three times but the man was able to return fire and shot Deputy Douglas in the groin. Deputy Douglas then shot the man three more times, killing him. Deputy Douglas succumbed to his wound the following day during an operation.

Deputy Douglas had been with the agency for 16 months and had previously served with the Beaumont Police Department and Fire Department.
