Coleman's daughters. Alter talking
with them a few minutes he pulled tbe
pistol out and without warning began
shooting at the women. Mrs. Osborne
fell to the floor dead, shot tbrougb the
breast. Mies Coleman was shot through
tbe arm, but managed to escape. Moss
then rushed into old man Coleman's
bed room and began firing at him. Two
shots took effect, one tbrougb eitber
lung. Coleman cannot recover. Moss
then ran out into a vacant lot and fired
a bullet through hie own heart.
A letter found on Mobs says he shot
Miss Coleman because she failed to keep
her promise of marrying him. He shot
ber sister, Mrs. Osborne, because she in
terfered in his plan.
