Police Officer Dick Bullard was shot and killed when he and several other officers attempted to arrest a man who was suspected of illegally killing cattle and stealing meat on the Tongue River Agency reservation in Lame Deer, Montana.

One officer had previously attempted to get the subject to come to the agency headquarters to speak about the thefts but the man threatened him. The officer returned with five other officers in order to arrest the man. As they spoke to him the man's wife came out of their tepee with a knife. The man then opened fire on the officers, killing Officer Bullard.

The other officers retreated. The man's son then killed the man, his mother, and his sister before committing suicide because he was upset that the man was going to turn himself in.
