Summary: Sheriff Nugent and Chief Deputy Delmer Brunson were shot and killed while responding to the scene of a prior shooting.

The farmer and his son fired on the rangers. As Sheriff Nugent and Chief Deputy Brunson approached the scene after the initial incident they were both shot and killed by the farmer. The suspect was captured by a posse two days later.
