Deputy Dunn was shot and killed in Mississippi by members of the KKK in retaliation for his participation in the arrest of several the group's members.

He and two other deputies had the arrested several members for attacking a man. After the initial arrest the other two marshals left the region, leaving Deputy Dunn to complete the investigation. Early one morning the suspects rode up to the room he was staying in, barged in, and shot him.
