Young Kentuckian Killed and the Dancers Thrown Into Panic
Maysville, Ky., Sept. 26.—Henry Edwards, aged 23, was shot and instantly killed last night at Lewisburg, this county, by Clarence Turner, aged 20.
Both began firing at each other at close range, which created a panic, men and women climbing out of windows and dropping to the ground, bruising themselves considerably. No one but Edwards was struck by bullets, and when the shooting was over he staggered to the door where he fell dead. Turner is in jail here, claiming self-defense.
