A search the following day resulted in the discovery of the suspects in the foothills above Willard. A gunfight ensued during which one of the suspects and Captain Brown were shot and killed. The surviving suspect, who fired the shot that killed Captain Brown, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. He was paroled in 1918.
