Special Marshal Dixon was shot and killed in Wewoka, Oklahoma, while guarding a road during a search for four men who were wanted for several robberies and the murder of Deputy Marshal John Morrison two days earlier. As Special Marshal Dixon guarded the road two of the suspects approached. When they disobeyed his order to stop he opened fire on them, wounding one of them in the leg. The two then returned fire with rifles and struck him in the chest. The wounded suspect was arrested near the scene and the other three were arrested the following day.

Special Marshal Dixon had been deputized that day to serve on the posse searching for the men. He was survived by his wife and four children.
