Wildlife Officer Lloyd Mayse was shot and killed by a man while conducting hunting license checks on two brothers in Northampton County at 4:00 am. Unbeknownst to Officer Mayes, one of the brothers was a fugitive from Virginia.

A struggle ensued between the three in which Officer Mayse shot and killed one of the men. Officer Mayse was also shot and killed during the struggle.

The brother who survived then hid Officer Mayse's body and fled back to Virginia with his brother's body. He was arrested later that day after crashing his vehicle during a vehicle pursuit on I-264 in Virginia. He was acquitted of murder after accusing his deceased brother of firing the fatal shot.

Officer Mayse was a veteran of the Vietnam War.
