Sheriff R. M. McCrimmon of
Mount Vernon, said the victim,
identified as Isaiah Nixon, ot Al

Dublin from three gunshot wounds
allegedly fired by one J. A. John

The seriff said Johnson’s bro- 1

murder charge was placed agamst
J. A. following his arrest Sun
The seriff said he was told
that Nixon went to a polling place
in Alston and asked if he could
vote. He was told Sh eriff Mc
Crirnmon said, that he had th<a
right to vote but was advised nov
to do so. Nixon insisted, how
ever, according to the sheriff and
was allowed to cast his ballot.
The seriff said the Johnson

that night and that J. A. Johnson
fired the fatal shots in front of
Nexon’s wife and children.
According to the sheriff, John

Nixon to work for them and that
his brother shot in self-defense.
Investigators here wanted to
know why the Johnsons were
armed if they simply went to
see Nixon about a job.
