Deputy Gibson was shot and killed as he and several other deputies attempted to arrest three men. The men had gone to a house of ill repute and setup an ambush for the deputies, who they knew were searching for them.

When Deputy Gibson entered one of the rooms the suspects opened fire, killing him and wounding a second deputy. The other deputies returned fire and fatally wounded one of the suspects. The other two suspects fled but both were later apprehended, including the suspect who shot Deputy Gibson.

Deputy Gibson had served with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office for 2 years. He was survived by his wife.
