FLOYD HONEYCUTT SHOT AND KILLED
BY CITY MARSHAL STONER
----------------
KILLING TAKES PLACE ON STREE LATE SATURDAY NIGHT
----------------
Floyd Honeycutt, aged 28, of this place, was shot and killed at 11:30 last Saturday night, by City Marshal Bill Stoner, who shot Honeycutt twice, one shot from the marshal's pistol taking effect in the left side below the heart and the other through the stomach.
The shooting took place in the street in front of Cecil Jennings' store and was witnessed by two or three parties on the street.
According to witnesses, Honeycutt was said to have been drinking. The marshal accosted him in the east part of town, searched him and took a knife off of him, at the same time warning Honeycutt to go home. Stoner came to the east of town, it is reported, and a short while afterwards, learned that Honeycutt was back in town armed with a pistol and was hunting Stoner. The two men met, the marshal ordering Honeycutt to put up his hands. The latter reached for his pistol and was drawing it on Stoner when the marshal fired. Honeycutt clutched his pistol even after he fell and until Stoner reached down and took it. Honeycutt lived about five minutes after being shot.
A coroner's jury was summoned by Dr. Noel Copp, the inquest being held promptly.
Mr. Stoner immediately telephoned to Sheriff W.E. Billingsley at Melbourne and offer to surrender, but was not held. Sheriff W.E. Billingslery and Deputy Homer Harris arrived shortly after being notified of the killing.
