Deputy Carpenter was shot and killed when he confronted three ex-convicts who had just robbed a store in Willow Creek, California. A shootout ensued and Deputy Carpenter and one of the suspects were killed. The other two suspects fled but one was later apprehended.

The other suspect was captured five years later after he robbed a post office in New York City. He was returned to California and sentenced to life in prison on July 7, 1933.
