Summary: Patrolman Thomas was shot and killed with his own service weapon while attempting to place two brothers in a cell at the Pilot Mountain Police Department. One of the brothers lunged for Patrolman Thomas; the three scuffled and Thomas was shot.

Both suspects were charged with murder and released after posting bail.

The two were awaiting trial when on Saturday night, July 30, 1966, one of the suspects shot and killed a man at a bar and grill ten miles east of Mount Airy. The next day the suspect was spotted in his vehicle by a Patrick County, Virginia Deputy Sheriff near Stuart, Virginia. When he stopped the car the suspect jumped out and ran. When the deputy and several other officers cornered the suspect he shot and killed himself.

Patrolman Thomas had served with the agency for 4 years. He was survived by his wife and four children
