Marshal Atkinson was shot and killed by the brother of a man he was attempting to arrest.

Despite being wounded, Marshal Atkinson was able to get up and again tried to subdue the suspect when the brother shot him in the chest, killing him. Both subjects then fled the scene.

The man he was originally attempting to arrest was captured in Portsmouth, Virginia, approximately three weeks later. The shooter was arrested in Concord, North Carolina, one month after the incident.
