Wiggins Kills Himself After a Fierce Pistol Battle
Patrolman S. D. Scott had
been attracted by the sound of Ihn
.shooting early in the encounter. He
started across the street toward Pa
trolman John Ward. The latterly
warnrd Scott lo pet out of danger.
Scott evidently didn't understand.
for tlu* next inrtant hr received a
bulle, in the breast, Scot, was on
the car tracks at the time, and
gins fired a, him throu ,h the slats
of the shutter.
The bullet penetrated Scott Just
above the heart. He was taken to the
Delaware Hospital in the automobile
(Continued From First Page.)
Mrdshol add bullets from across the
Street force him to flee.
Por an hour the firing was kept up.
Jt was like a battle. Wiggins did
fire anywhere nearly so many times
as the police did. as he evidently did
not have much ammunition.
A large crowd gathered, but kept
at a respectful distance. Bullets and
bird shot wore flying in every direc
tion. The police blazed away repeat
edly into Wiggins' quarters from
across the street.

used hla last bullet lo end his oWn
