Sergeant Aamold was shot and killed by a robbery suspect outside of a bar on University Avenue. The bar owner had called police because he thought two suspicious men were going to rob him. Sergeant Aamold and another officer entered from different entrances and took custody of the two men. As Sergeant Aamold walked one of the men outside the man produced a gun and shot him twice. The suspect later shot and wounded another officer who noticed him later in the evening.

Sergeant Aamold had been with the agency for 24 years. He was survived by his wife and five children.
