Sheriff of Bee County, Texas, 1944 to 1952, and a subject of many articles and books.
At this point in the sheriff's career he had already killed four men. Though they wouldn't be the last, there were about to be two more...
In one of his many encounters with the armed and lawless, Sheriff Ennis received a phone call from Sheriff_Harper_Morris in neighboring Karnes County advising him that 2 check swindlers, William_Raymond_Pittman and Pat_Hines were headed his way. Sheriff Ennis caught them at a filling station and after handcuffing them went inside to phone Sheriff Morris that he had the men. One of the men drew a gun from a shoulder holster and shot Ennis in the chest and abdomen. As the 2 men made for the door, Ennis unloaded his gun at them, reloaded, and emptied again. Both men died on the spot. Ennis recovered from his wounds.
