Sheriff Abram Kulp was shot and killed while serving a peace bond and escorting a woman to her home to remove her belongings. The woman's ex-husband showed up and opened fire with a .32 caliber handgun, killing the woman, mortally wounding Sheriff Kulp, and injuring the woman's father.

Sheriff Kulp was transported to a local hospital before being returned to his residence at the county jail. He died a short time later.

The suspect fled to New Jersey where he attempted to commit suicide. He survived the suicide attempt, was arrested, and returned to Bucks County. While awaiting trial he hung himself in his jail cell.
