Deputy Earl Bucher was shot and killed while responding to the scene of domestic disturbance in which a man had just shot his wife.

As Deputy Bucher approached the house, the man stuck a shotgun out of the door and shot him in the head.

The suspect then stole Deputy Bucher's gun and pinned Deputy Bucher's badge onto his own clothing. He was still wearing the badge when he was located by a posse. The man was shot and killed by the posse in a shootout that lasted more than one hour.
