Incident

Trooper Dixon stopped to assist two young men with a disabled vehicle. As he approached the vehicle and asked who owned the car, one of the men, who were both members of the Easton Gang, shot Dixon in the hand. Reaching for his gun to return fire, more gunfire erupted and Trooper Dixon was shot. Two days later Trooper Dixon died, but not before one of the assailants had been killed and the other captured.
