Chief Sterling was killed by a group of Indians, possibly including Geronimo, who were coming to raid the town of San Carlos, Arizona.

Chief Sterling and an Indian guide rode out to intercept them after they were forewarned by a telegraph operator. Chief Sterling was killed first and the guide later.

The exact manner of his death remains undetermined.
