Deputy Monahan was shot and killed while trying to keep order during an uprising involving a large group of Japanese railroad workers in Caliente. The uprising started when the train the workers were riding in separated. The workers attached the train crew, who in turn went for assistance.

When Deputy Monahan arrived at the scene he was attacked.

Three men who were thought to be involved with attacking Deputy Monahan were apprehended.
