Officer Beets and Captain Charles Gougenheim were shot and killed while checking liquor licenses at a local bar. As Officer Beets was leaning behind the bar to read a beer license the bar owner's brother shot him. Officer Beets never saw his attacker. The suspect then ran out of the bar and opened fire on Captain Gougenheim, who was waiting in the patrol car parked outside.

Captain Gougenheim exited the car and returned fire, fatally wounding the suspect, however, was fatally wounded himself.
