A Negro Woman Kills a Man, Putting
Two Winchester Bullets Through
His Body?Pistol Duel Between
White Men?One Dead.
Mr. Harvey C. Brooks, janitor of the
bullding of tbe Riehmond Industrial and
iVevelopment Company, was crushed to
ileath yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock
1., tween the elevator, which he was op?
erating, and a protruding landing of the
second fioor of the company's building, at
the foot of Twelfth Street.
His head and shoulders were manglci
beyond recognition, causing instant death.
HOW IT HAPI'ENED.
The accident was due to an attack of
epilepsy, with which Mr. Brooks fell in
thc tloor of the ear while it was going up,
v. ith his head protruding over the stfde, so
that it caught under the landing with
such t'orce that the elevator was stopped
and the unfortunate man's body wa,s
th'-own over and into the hallway.
A r.egro '? drlver, Ben Jones. was in the
elevator at the Ume, having gotten on
at the first lloor and started up to the
thiid floor with Mr. Brooks. Almost the
moincnt Mr. Brooks started the car up?
ward he was taken with a cunvulsion.
which he was subject to, and staggered
for a second Into one corner o? tho car
before he fell. This friehtened the negro
o.cupant of the elevator out of all rea?
son. and before he could recover himself
or make any effort to bring the elevator
to a slop. the life had been crushed out
of the writhing bouy ot the man; wfco
lav on the elevator Hoor.
very; near his home.
Mr.; Brooks lived at No. 300 South
Twelfth Street. within a stone's throw of
the building in which he was killed, and
had made that his home since last May,
when he tirst became an emp'.oye of the
company. He leaves a wife and three
small children. who were solely depen
dent upon the dead man.
Irhmediately after the accident the am
bulan'-e was summoned. but upon the ar
rival of Dr. Sandtdge the mangled body
was lifeless. Goroner Tayior vieweti. the
remains as they lay heiween the elevator
and the tloor. and at his order the body
was freed from the death-trap. The of?
ficers of the company directed the body
\n be taken t<> the undertaking rooms of
Mr. L. T. ChrisUah.
Mr. Brooks came to Riehmond about
four years ago from his home in Ches?
terfleld county, where his parents now
reslde. His father was informed last
night of the accident. and upon his ex?
pected arrival this morning the funeral
arrangements will be made.
