Jailer Mayo was shot and killed while coming to the aid of another deputy who had been attacked by six inmates while serving them food. The inmates had slammed the cell's steel door into another deputy and knocked him down. They then took a 2-shot Derringer from the deputy's pocket and began to beat him with a battery-filled sock. Jailer Mayo was shot in the head as he came to the assistance of the other deputy. The prisoners then began to destroy the property room but were all apprehended by other deputies. All six were charged with murder and attempted escape.
Jailer Mayo had been with the agency for only two years and had previously served four years with the McGregor Police Department. He was survived by his wife and three children.
