Karnes County Sheriff_Harper_Morris called Sheriff_Vail_Ennis in the neighboring county of Bee to tell him that 2 check swindlers, 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.
