1889.01.05 Shooting

About 5 o’clock Saturday evening, an altercation in the Bureau Saloon, between Jas Larkin and Geo. Craig, took place which resulted in a shooting affair, Craig receiving two bullet wounds, one in the hand and the other a severe but not dangerous wound in the right cheek. The bullet entered about an inch from the corner of the mouth and ranged back, coming out on the neck, just below the ear. Dr. A. M. Smith was called in immediately after the shooting and rendered his assistance by dressing the wounds. Larkin went directly to the Sheriff’s office and gave himself up to Deputy Sheriff Ferrill. Later he was taken before Justice Carr and placed under $1000 bonds, with Daniel Murphy and John McDonough as sureties, to appear before Justice Carr to-morrow at 10 o’clock a. m.

As found in the Humboldt Daily Standard.
