Deputy Summey was shot and killed with his own service weapon. He and another deputy attempted to serve a warrant on a man for assault on a female, and communicating threats stemming from a domestic dispute the previous night.

The deputies had gone to the suspect's home with the victim, but the suspect did not answer the door. The suspect's wife gave the deputies a key and the deputies entered the trailer, where they encountered the suspect. The suspect became belligerent and started to struggle with the deputies. As Deputy Summey reached for his pepper spray, the suspect grabbed his service weapon, a .45 caliber Glock.

The suspect shot Deputy Summey in the chest three times and shot the other deputy in the arm. Despite being wounded, the other deputy continued to struggle with the suspect and then returned fire as he retreated to his patrol car to call for backup. The suspect surrendered when a third deputy arrived on the scene. The man was transferred to a neighboring county and charged with murder. On February 7, 2005, the suspect was sentenced to death.

Deputy Summey had served with the Randolph County Sheriff's Department for 4 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Hey best friend,
Today, it certainly don't seem like 14 years have passed since you went home to our Savior. I miss you--everyday thoughts cross my mind about you--the time we had together--the time lost...time stolen...things you miss out on...I miss spending time together, your laughter, your smile, your kind heart, my best friend...even after all this time I miss you!
Love you forever & always
