Corporal Hinson was shot once in the head and killed while responding to a breaking and entering call. The suspect had called in a false breaking and entering report to lure an officer to an ambush. As Corporal Hinson approached, he was shot and killed without warning at close range.

The suspect, a juvenile, was apprehended nearby by responding officers. During interviews, the suspect reportedly bragged the ambush was an execution to complete gang initiation. The shooter and another juvenile suspect were tried as adults and sentenced to life in prison with an additional 70 years to run consecutively.

Corporal Hinson was survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters
