Deputy Jensen was shot and killed after stopping to help two men who were having car trouble. The men, wanted for a robbery in Ogden, opened fire on Deputy Jensen, shooting him with .38 caliber and .22 caliber handguns. Both were captured in Wyoming a few days later.

Both suspects were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life. One was paroled in 1987.

Deputy Jensen had served with the Davis County Sheriff's Department for 3 years.
