TENANT FARMER SHOT NEAR PARKIN
A 65-year-old tenant farmer was shot and killed near Parkin around 6 o’clock Monday night by a Parkin plantation owner.
Marshal Lloyd C. Cole said, William S. “Bill” Simpson, 55, shot HENRY H. YOUNG, at the Shady Grove Grocery Store on Highway 75 after an argument over a crop settlement.
Mr. Simpson was in the store when Mr. Young came in “after him” with a 12-gauge shotgun, Marshal Cole reported. He said Mr. Simpson fired four shots from a 22-caliber pistol at Mr. Young, but only one of them hit him, entering his left side.
Mr. Young leaves his wife and six children.
