Deputy Harmon was shot and killed by a guard at a local mine following an earlier incident in which other guards shot and killed three union mine workers. The earlier incident occurred at the local train station when the guards went to pickup non-union miners and escort them to the mine. A group of union miners approached the guards, who opened fire on them.

The guards returned to the mine, where they were arrested a short time later. Deputy Harmon was shot by a fourth guard at the mine while attempting to keep order. The guard who shot Deputy Harmon was also arrested.
