Fugitive From Justice Arrested.
After being a fugitive from justice
almost a year and a half James Jones,
v anted in this city on a charge of
shooting and wounding with intent to
kill, was captured yesterday afternoon
and is in jail awaiting his examining
The capture of Jones, was brought
about through the efforts of Patrolman
Fred Link, who was the arresting
officer, and after he had gained infor
mation of the presence of the man in
this city, who has been so long sought
by tha police.
Jones was reported yesterday morn
ing to be at the home cf Mrs. Byrd on
Eighth street, and the officer went
there in search of him. However, his
efforts were without result, as Jones
was nowhere to be fund. Leavihg
the occupants of the house under the
impression that he was looking for
another party, the officer went away.
Later in tha day Patrolman Link re
turned to the place and in driving by
he saw Jones sitting on the porch.
Without displaying any intention to
arrest Jones he drove around to the
rear of the house and coming in the
rear door, took Jones into custody, al
most before he was aware the officer
was in his presence.
Jones is wanted here for the shoot
ing of Sam Custer, a negro, at the
livery stable of Martin Bros., on the
afternoon of December 9, 1910.
The shooting occurred about 4:30
o'clock in the afternoon, and is said
to have been unorovoked.
Custer, who lived at Brentsville, a
negro settlement, had disposed of a
horse to Martin Bros, the day before
and being in town Saturday went to
the stable on Eighth street, and was
seated in the office when Jones ia said
to have entered. He became abusive
and when Custer started to leave the
office, he drew his revolver and fired
three shots into his body. rT
The first shot took effect near the
rignt shoulder blade, and the force of
the shot turned him around, the second
shot entering his mouth while the
third shot struck him in the left breast
about three inches trom the heart and
passed entirely through the body.
After the shoofing, Jones, who was
unknown to any of the witnesses.made
his escaDe out Eighth Street, but an
accurate description was furnished the
police, who ascertained later his name
and place of residence and a diligent
search was made for several weeks
Sometime after the shooting Jones
was reported to have been shot to
death in a fight at a dance in Scott
county, but it later developed that the
man killed was not the one wanted
here, but a brother. The whereabouts
of the man who shot Custer remained
a mystery until the officials receivsd
IheTnformation yesterday that he was
in Paris, and which led to his arrest.
Custer remained in a serious con
dition for some time as'a result of his
wounds but finally recovered, only to
be stricken with blindness. He is a
negro of good character and is highly
respected. JThe examining trial of
Jones has been set tor Friday morning
at 10 o'clock and will be held by Squire
L. J. Fretwell, who issued the warrant
for his arrest on the night of the shoot
