DEPUTY SHORT KILLS FOREIGNER THURSDAY EVENING

STANLEY CHICONZA WAS KILLED BY DEPUTY JOE SHORT LAST EVENING ABOUT SEVEN O'CLOCK.

Full Particulars Are Not Known, But It Is Understood That Short Was Making An Arrest.

Hurst, Dec. 17. Deputy Sheriff Joe Short shot and Killed Stanley Chiconza here last evening about 7 o'clock. Chiconza, it is reported, was "shooting up the town" along with several of his friends and the deputy was attempting to make the arrest when the fatal shot was fired. Chiconza was in his back yard when shot according to witnesses.

Last May Chiconza was in the Williamson county jail upon a charge of wife-beating, but has not been in trouble since that time, as far as could be learned.

Sheriff Harris and Coroner Strike are here looking into the matter and holding an inquest. They came over this morning.
