Here’s the latest news from the El Paso Times, dateline June 16, 1924:

With only three shells, Threepersons grabbed Jara, the only man arrested, and began to retreat. A man jumped in his path and pointed a pistol at him. Threepersons told the man to throw up his hands, but the man refused and fired his pistol point-blank at the officer. Threepersons fired his 30-30 caliber rifle at the man, who dropped to the ground.

Later investigation made by officers showed that the body of a man had been dragged from the scene of battle by a horse.

Those were the days.
