Deputy Joe Robinson was shot and killed while he and several other deputies attempted to arrest a man wanted for several crimes in a neighboring county. The deputies had located the man at a home and were surrounding it when the man opened fire from a window. Deputy Robinson was struck in the chest and killed instantly.

The suspect fled the scene after shooting Deputy Robinson. A large posse was formed to search for the suspect, but he was never captured. The suspect was also involved in killing of Deputy/Town Marshal David Levy Alvarez on May 30, 1891 and was later killed by an accomplice for reward money.

Deputy Robinson was survived by his wife and children.
