Jenkins was pointed out to Officer Disheroon by a negro from Blossburg, who said that Jenkins took $2.50 from Jilin yesterday at the point of a revolver. Said the informant to Officer Disheroon: “I didn’t mind the loss of the money so .much as I did the fact that Jenkins com pelled me to kiss his pistol after be rob bed me." It is said Jenkins also robbed several other negroes. When Officer Disheroon approached Jenkins the latter ran up Avenue II to ward Twenty-first street. He refused to halt and as the officer could not gain on him he drew his revolver and fired at the fugitive. Jenkins, without checking his pace, answered with two shots from a 44 Colts revolver. One of the bullets struck a negro by stander in the shoe, but did not hit his foot. Officer Disheroon returned the shot and kept up the chase, which developed into a running duel. The negro turned into an alley and near a vacant lot stopped and deliberately aimed his pistol at the brave officers. Both fired simul taneously, but again the bullets flew wide of their living targets. The negro then ran under a house and, with his pistol pointed at the officer, declared he would kill him if he came after him, but Dish eroon fell on his face and began to crawl tow'ards the negro JusTas Officer Brlzen dlne, who put in a timely appearance, covered Jenkins from another side of the house. Jenkins threw his pistol to Offi cer Disheroon and was carried to the city prison.
