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.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the memorial service for my great grandfather. Especially Kim Weigand, her husband and the other member of COPS PA. Chief Sourbier and the Waynesboro Police Department. The representation of the other departments was impressive. When I met with them in June 2013 I had no idea the magnitude of their efforts to keep his memory alive. Thank you.
