DR. SEWELL MIZELL DIES OF
Supposed to Be Accidental No One
Witness'd Shooting Which ‘^cur
red Just As He Was Starting for
Dr. Sewell Mizell shci himrelf with
a pistol yesterday morning, inflict
ing a wound w*hich caused his death
last night at 9:15 o’clock. The shot
is presumed to have been accidental
ly inflic ted. No one wii nessed the
r,hooting, which occurred at the Miz
ell residence, 1509 Madison street, at
11:10 o’clock yesterday morning.
Dr. and Mrs. Mizell were preparing
to go for an outing. They were about
ready to start, when Dr. Mizell asked
his wife to hand him his pipol,
which they usually took with them
on their outings. Mr-. Mizell handed
|it to him and just then went into the
kitchen. Ar: that moment she heard
the shot and, rushing back, found
her husband lying on the floor
wounded. The pistol lay on the floor
Mrs. Mizell called help at once. ;
Dr. Rentfro and Dr. Loew were sum
moned and come at once.
\V. B. Egly, who lives next door,
ran to the house as soon as he heard
Mrs. Mizell call for help. He found
the doctor lying c.n the floor, con
scious. Wii h the help of Mrs. Mi~ell
he lifted the physician to bils bed,
and then called the doctors. The gun,
a 38-caliber, was pic ked up from the j
floor by Mrs. Mizell and turned over
to officers who arrived on the scene
in a short time. The bullet was found
later and given no Dr. Rentfro.
The doctors had the wounded man
removed to the Rio Grande sanitar- j
irm. On examination it was found
that the bullet, had entered the body
abour: half an inch to the left of the
heart and just above the sventh rib,
passed through the lung and out the
back. At first it was not thought 1 hat
the wound wac necessarily fatal, but
later the injured man began to ’ink,
and by 9:15 last night t he end came. |
Dr. Mizell moved to Brownsville j
several months ago, with his wife,
from Mexico. He was formerly a resi- |
dent et' Kaufman, Texas, where his
parents reside. His brother R. E. Mi
zell of Houston is expected to arrive
today at noon, when arrangements
for the fuperal will be made.
