Constable William Hood and Deputy Louis Harvill 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.

Constable Hood was survived by his wife.
