Trooper Mills was shot and killed while investigating a domestic complaint involving two neighbors in Brookview, Maryland. While on the scene he was shot in the chest with a .38 caliber handgun and knocked down. As he attempted to draw his weapon he was shot in the chest with a high powered rifle. The man who shot him also shot and killed the neighbor he had been arguing with.

On November 6, 1979, the 68 year-old suspect was found not guilty by reason of insanity and sent to a mental institution.

Trooper Mills had been with the agency for almost nine years.
