Special Agent Bailey was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada. Agent Bailey was in a bank when it was robbed. He identified himself as an agent and ordered the man to stop. As the man turned Agent Bailey fired a round, but missed the suspect. However, he was able to take the suspect into custody and place him on a chair. As Special Agent Bailey's attention was diverted the suspect lunged at him and knocked his gun out of his hand. The suspect recovered his own weapon and shot Agent Bailey three times.
Agent Bailey had been with the agency for 21 years and was survived by his wife and two daughters.
