She is shot down by her son-in-law - the homicide arrested.
Denison, Tex, Jan 24 - At 5:15 this afternoon a colored woman in
the prime of her life, the wife
of Josh Wilson, driver of an express wagon, was shot and instantly
killed by her son -in-law, Collins McKinney.
The sound of the shots quickly attracted a crowd, who found the
woman dead, and near by stood Will Floyd, a young colored man with a bullet
wound in his left arm. McKinney, the pistol still smoking, made a gesture
as if to take his own life, fired the weapon in close proximity of his head,
but did no damage beyond grazing his neck. He then made a rush at the crowd
as if to force his way through, but was promptly grabbed by two young white
men and held until officers Penn and Skeen arrived on the scene
and took him in custody.
