Deputy Webb succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained five days earlier when he and a deputized civilian attempted to arrest a man in Catalpa for beating his wife. When the two deputies got off of the train they observed the man, who immediately tried to flee. As they caught up to him the man opened fire with a revolver, striking Deputy Webb five times. As the man fired at the civilian Deputy Webb was able to fire a single shot at the man, fatally wounding him.

Deputy Webb was taken by train back to Riverview Hospital where he later died on his 48th birthday.

Deputy Webb was a two-time widower and was survived by his five children.
