The deputies had gone to the home to arrest the subject for failing to appear in court on a traffic violation. The man refused to cooperate and the deputies requested assistance from the Locust Grove Police Department.

Several minutes after Officer Maddox arrived at the scene the officers attempted to take the man into custody. The subject opened fire on the officers, killing Officer Maddox and wounding both deputies before being shot and killed.
