Birth: Feb. 9, 1869
Death: Apr. 14, 1897

Texas, USA

On April 10, 1897 twenty-year-old Jim Cooke's mother had requested that Deputy Binnion speak to her son about returning home. Deputy Binnion went to the house in Colorado City where Cooke was known to be, and as he stepped in the door the young man fired, shooting Binnion through the bowels. Cooke then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide. Binnion fell outside, fired one shot into the room, not knowing that Cooke was already dead. Deputy Binnion was carried home and died on April 14.
