Deputy Dillingham was shot and killed in Virginia City, Montana, by three men who were seeking revenge against him. Deputy Dillingham had discovered that the three, one of whom was a fellow deputy, were going to rob two miners and warned the intended victims. When the three suspects learned of the warning they located Deputy Dillingham and shot him.

Two of the men were sentenced to death but on a second jury vote were sentenced to banishment from Virginia City.

Deputy Dillingham had only been appointed a deputy the previous month.
