Chief Boos was shot and killed after responding to a party in a field. When he and the other officer arrived they heard either gun shots or firecrackers and then told all of the teenagers to get into their cars. Two of the teenagers ran into the woods and Chief Boos followed. When he told the boys again to return to their cars he was shot. He was able to return fire and wound one of the suspects, who was apprehended and convicted. The man was released from prison in 2000.
Chief Boos worked only part time as Chief of Police for only $100 per month and was survived by his wife and two children.
