Walter Gaddis Is
Shot in Leg Sunday
While in company with four friends
on their way to Sulphur River bottoms
Sunday afternoon, Walter Gaddis of
Winfield sustained a flesh wound in
one leg, as he was riding in the ea ■
carrying the party.
It was said that Talco officers tried
to halt the car and that the driver j
misunderstood their actions or thought
they were trying to have some fun,
so he kept on driving. Shots were
fired after the car, and Mr. Gaddis
was hit in the leg. His injuries are
not serious, although a bullet pene
tvated the leg.
