SHOOTS TO KILL
CHrtis W. Spence Puts Five Ballets
Into Body of Robert L. O'Prj la Co
Columbia. S. C, May 30.?Curtis W.
Spence, an employe of tbo street rail
way company at the substation on
Assembly street, pumped five bullets
into Robert L. O'Pry, an Insurance col
lector, last night ana then told the
ofllcers who arrived later that he did
the shooting. The whole affair was
! over in a few seconds and thost who
heard the shots gathered to look at
the dead body of O'Pry after Spence
bad been taken to the pollco station
by the officers who sent In the call
and those on duty at the station who I
heard the shots, Just one block away.
Domestic troubles aro said to be the
cause of tho shooting, according to
Ofllcer Davis, who know the men and
heard of previous qwnrrels. The fact
that both were put under peace bond
by Recorder Verner Is a part of the
record, as is tho fact that O'Pry and
his wife were separated.
The shooting occurred about 8:30
o'clock on west Lady street, near tho
office of tho Southern Express com
pany, about a half block from Main
street. According to the testimony of
witnesses secured by tbo police and
by Coroner Walker, three shots were
llred In rapid succession and then two
more, tho shooting being done with a
Colt .3S calibre pistol. The first shots
were so quick that Ernest Wlx, who
was in the express office at the time,
and rushed out, saw O'Pry fall, heard
him cry out and saw Spence lire sev
eral times afterwards, at the same
time warning others to keep away.
Thos. Norton of the city board of
health force and Officer Irby reached
the Bcone Immediately, spence re
marked to Norton: "I did it. Watch
that knife by his side and see that no
one gets it." Wix says thai Spence
continued to snap hr.i pistol after it
was emptied. Spence was carried to
the station at once and O'Pry's body
was removed to McCormlck's under
taking establishment later. The in
vestigation started at once.
Tio. police and coroner learned that
O'Pry and Spence had been placed
under peace bond by Recorder Ver
ner alter a fight between the two.
Since then, according to the police,
the two ha\o not met, but O'Pry, who
is an Insurance collector, left the city
for several weeks and on his re
turn shadowed his house. Last night
the two met and the llvinc, witness to
the conversation that took place be
tween the two Is Spence, who is In
the city Jail, the charge of murder
being entered on the docke?, against
him. There was a bunch of keys in
the hands of tho dead man and a
small pocket knife at his side.
Coroner Walker said lust night that
he would bold the inquest some time
today and examine a number of wit
nesses who arrived alter the shoot
ing occurred. These include W. W.
Bailey, who says that Spence told
him to stand back, after the shooting
took place. Thos. Norton, who as
sisted in the arrest of Spence; Dr. S.
.1. Peake of Cross Hill, who saw the
shooting from Iiis chair near the corl
dor of tho Jerome hotel, Efnoal
Wix, and several others.
At the city jai! last night Spence
asked Coroner Walker if O'Pry was
dead. He had no statement to ma'ce.
Very little is known of either except
that Spence has been emnj ;/ed by the
street railway company or some time
and O'Pry has been with an insurance
concern. The men are each about !'>?*?
years of ago. Spence is unmarried,
according to Coroner Walker.- The
