Constable Maker was stationed at Peterborough, Ontario at the time of his death.

Constable Maker had received a call at home regarding backup for a Liquor Inspector who was investigating a number of complaints against a local drunk. As the officers approached a stairway the suspect appeared on a floor above and fired 2 shots from a Frontier model .44 revolver. The second shot struck Constable Maker in the forehead, killing him instantly.

The suspect escaped but was seen running into a local paint shop. A Peterborough municipal officer Constable Matthews waited outside for the suspect. When the suspect emerged from the shop he raised his weapon to fire but was shot and killed before he could fire the weapon again. Constable Maker survived by his wife and two daughters.
