Chief Hoover Hinton succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained one week earlier while attempting to arrest two men for being drunk.

The men had held a grudge against Chief Hinton for an incident several years earlier in which the chief had fatally shot one of their family members during another arrest.

Despite being mortally wounded, Chief Hinton was able to return fire and killed both suspects.
