**************************************************
"The LaFayette Sun" - September 29, 1926:

KILLING OCCURRED NEAR UNION (SCHOOL) SUNDAY.

Alonza Jackson (Lon) Fant, a well known citizen of Chambers County, was instantly killed last Sunday afternoon about three o'clock at the store near Union School. It is reported that Fant was either standing or sitting on the front of the store when three men rode up in a car and opened fire on him. Five shots are alleged to have been fired with three taking effect, one of which was enough to produce death. One of the bullets struck the victim about the shoulder joint and passing downward through the heart and both lungs while two others penetrated the abdomen and left thigh respectively. Sheriff Simpson and deputies were immediately summoned to that section and upon investigation Rex Jarrell, Heflin Harmon, and TOM ISON were arrested and placed in the Chambers County jail. It is reported that Rex Jarrell has confessed to the shooting while the car in which they were riding belonged to Heflin Harmon. They are being held pending an investigation by a coroner's jury.
