They encountered a subject carrying a pistol at the dance and asked him to disarm or leave. The subject became argumentative with the deputies and then shot Deputy Carpenter in the stomach.

Despite his wound, Deputy Carpenter returned fire. Deputy Carpenter, Deputized Civilian Reyes, and the subject were all fatally wounding in the ensuing shootout.
