Patrolman Daywalt was shot and killed while trying to arrest two men who had just shot a woman in the foot

Patrolman Daywalt and the Waynesboro Police Chief ordered two brothers to leave town after they had caused a disturbance. They followed the brothers to make sure they left town. One of the brothers opened fire on them and hit a young woman in the foot. Both of the officers pursued the brothers who fired again and killed Patrolman Daywalt.

The shooter was later shot and killed by a Pennsylvania State Trooper while he ran away from the trooper.
