Chief Hamby was shot and killed after responding to a robbery in progress at a local driver's licensing station. Upon arriving he engaged two suspects in gunfire, fatally wounding one of them, and was wounded himself. Chief Hamby went outside to reload his revolver, giving the second suspect an opportunity to escape. Chief Hamby stumbled to a nearby laundromat for assistance and succumbed to his wounds on the floor. The second suspect was eventually apprehended and sentenced to life. The suspect escaped from prison during his term but was recaptured and given more prison time. Chief Hamby was the only officer on the department. He had served in law enforcement for 20 years. Chief Hamby was divorced and survived by his two teenage sons James Ray and Mark Wayne.
