As the other officer searched one of the suspects another man produced a gun and held the officers at gunpoint. The suspects then fled on foot and the officers pursued them. Following a brief chase one of the suspects opened fire, striking Lieutenant Uhl three times.

Two of the suspects were apprehended after committing a kidnapping the following day. Both were sentenced to death and executed in the electric chair on April 25, 1935.
