Policeman Edward Hogle was shot and killed as he rode with a posse who were tracking a group of Indians suspected of murdering four ranchers in Washoe County. The posse located the Indians about forty miles east of Winnemucca. A prolonged shootout ensued in which Policeman Hogle and eight of the Indians were killed. Four other Indians were taken into custody. It is believed that three of the suspects died of disease and one died later of other causes.

Policeman Hogle had been sworn in earlier that day in Eagleville by the Nevada State Police captain who was in charge of the posse. He was survived by his mother and is reported to be buried at the Anderson District Cemetery in Anderson, California.
