Dear Mr. Hembree,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Registers of Commissioned Officers in the Philippine Scouts and the Puerto Rico Provisional Regiment, 1902-1918 that includes a list of casualties of Philippine Scouts from 1901-1918 showing rank, name, cause of casualty, date, and remarks; the Registers of Medical Reports, 1901-1912, Hospital Papers, 1886-1912, and Returns of Casualties, 1898-1908 that may provide some information related to the incident you described; Document Files, 1890-1917 that contains correspondence of the Office of the Adjutant General, consisting of letters received, reports, and related papers, together with press or carbon copies of replies thereto; Cablegrams Received from Philippine Commands, 1901-1914 and Cablegrams Sent to Philippine Commands, 1899-1912 that may be some discussion of the incident you are researching; and the Registers of Enlistments in the United States Army, 1798 - 1914 to look up individuals by name to find information about their service.

We also located the series Records of Philippine Scout Companies, 1905-1916, Records of Philippine Scouts' Battalions, 1901-1911, and Historical Accounts of Philippine Service, 1899-1919 in the Records of U.S. Regular Army Mobile Units (Records Group 391 that might contain relevant information. Lastly, we located multiple series of Correspondence and Letters from various companies of Philippine Scouts in Record Group 391.
Most of these records have not been digitized. For further information about all of these series, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
