Young Man Shoots and Kills the Murderer of His Brother
Corinth, KY - December 27, - Yesterday evening about 4 o'clock at New Columbus, Owen County, Kentucky, Lawrence and Lloyd Kinney, aged twenty-one and seventeen, were going to their stable to do their feeding when Granville Hughes and Brack Davis came up to them and began shooting at them. Lawrence Kinney dropped, shot through the body. Young Lloyd caught his brother's revolver and fired, shooting Hughes through the heart. Davis ran and got out of the way. Lloyd held up his brother's head and said, "Look, Lawrence, I have killed the man that shot you." Lawrence died in a few minutes, Lloyd Kinney was arrested and will have his examining trial Monday. The whole community held young Kinney blameless, as there was no cause for there was no cause for the out, and it is a great pity that Davis, who is a noted desparado, was not shot instead of young Kinney.
