Date: October 12 1917

Newspaper published in: Doniphan, MO

Tuesday morning of last week at Kennett, Tom SIDES shot and fatally wounded Floyd GAMLIN. The shooting took place in the business section of town near the post office. The wounded man was taken to the Centenary Hospital in St. Louis where it was found there was no hope for his recovery. He died the following Wednesday afternoon. Bad feelings had existed between them for some time, and previously had several fist fights. Mr. SIDES was arrested but later released under a $1,000 bond, and the charge changed from assault with intent to kill to homicide.
