Deputy Conrey was shot and killed during a robbery attempt. Deputy Conrey was approached by a suspect approximately 1230 AM in the city of Clayton. The suspect attempted to rob him and a gun battle ensued. Night Marshal Benjamin Corner, of the Clayton Police Department, was awoken by the gun shots and responded to the scene. He arrived at the scene and found both Deputy Conrey and the suspect wounded. Although wounded, the suspect shot and killed Marshal Corner.

The suspect was able to get into his automobile and escape into the city of St. Louis. Responding officers were able to track the vehicle to a park where the suspect abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot. The suspect and two accomplices were arrested nearby.
