Deputy Hoffman was shot and killed after being set up to get into a shoot out. The patrons of the local saloon did not like the suspect because he had a temper and they did not like Deputy Hoffman because he arrested them, so they got the suspect drunk and called the deputy to come arrest him knowing a shoot out was possible. When Deputy Hoffman arrived the suspect drew his weapon and shot Deputy Hoffman who returned fire killing the suspect. Deputy Hoffman died two days later.
Deputy Hoffman was survived by his wife and two sons.
