LUCKY SHOTS IN THE DARK
Man Brings Down Destroyer of His Family Ties
CALIENTE, Nev., May 12.— W. A. McLeod shot and seriously wounded E. H. Rainey at this place last night. McLeod had been employed at the Stein power plant for several years, where he resides with his family. Mrs. McLeod’s visits to Caliente have been growing in frequency, and word reached the husband yesterday that all was not right. He came up last night and upon gaining admittance to the wife’s room was set upon in the darkness, when he fired three shots, two of which took effect on a man who afterwards proved to be Rainey. McLeod, was arraigned before Judge Laynard this morning and was discharged. He immediately swore out a warrant to secure the custody of his 2 year old child. Dr. Murray attended the wounded man, and found that he had sustained a broken leg and a shattered foot, and sent him to the hospital at Salt Lake.
