Deputy Louis Harvill and Constable William Hood were shot and killed while investigating two suspicious vehicles that were parked in front of a dance hall. As they walked between the cars an occupant hiding in one of them opened fire, striking both officers.

Two brothers were apprehended and charged with the officer's murders.

Deputy Harvill died at the scene and Constable Hood succumbed to his wounds five days later.

Deputy Harvill was survived by his wife and four children.
