Deputy Drinkard was shot and killed while attempting to arrest three horse thieves.

Deputy Drinkard and a posse attempted to serve a warrant on three horse thieves. The posse surrounded the cabin and ordered the men to come out. Deputy Drinkard read the warrants out loud and ordered the suspects to exit the
residence. The suspects shot and killed Deputy Drinkard and fled the scene.

Two suspects were apprehended. One was shot in the leg and as a result had to have his leg amputated a week later.
