Patrolman Bush was shot and killed while responding to a domestic assault in Randlett, Utah. When he arrived at the scene he was directed to a rear room of the house where the suspect was located. As he entered the bedroom the male subject shot him in the chest with a .30-.30 carbine rifle. The suspect shot him a second time after he fell to the ground.

The suspect used a radio in Patrolman Bush's patrol car to call other officers, who arrived at the scene and arrested the man. The suspect appeared before a notoriously liberal federal judge who released him.

Patrolman Bush had served with the Bureau of Indian Affairs for 2 months and was assigned to the Ute Tribal Police. He was survived by his wife and two young children.
