Ponyboy faints after Dallas is shot by the police.  In chapter 10 of the novel, Ponyboy and Dally have just found out that Johnny has died.  Ponyboy does not really know what to do but Dally runs away and ends up robbing a store and being chased by the police.  They corner Dally and Dally pulls a gun on them; they end up shooting Dally and this is when Ponyboy faints.

He fainted because he just lost Johnny and now Dally. So he fainted due to the impact of it.
