Marshal Kinard was shot and killed by a man who he had told leave the area. Marshal Kinard was on his usual rounds when he was asked to respond to a disturbance at a local saloon. Upon his arrival he disarmed an intoxicated man and told him to go home. The man came back approximately one hour later with a Winchester Rifle and shot Marshal Kinard in the side. He was able to return fire, killing the suspect.
Marshal Kinard had been with the agency for five years and was survived by his wife and seven children.
