Battle at Edwards Home.
Saturday night the south portion
of the city was the scene oi' a family
quarrel that culminated in the shoot
ing of Richard Edwards, 23, by hid
i tepfathe r, P. A. MeCrary, as well as
the sever? beating up of MeCrary by
the members of the Edwards house
hold. Mr. MeCrary had been oov.n in the
business section of the city and re
turning to his residence on Lincoln
avenue found that his wife was at
th home of her sen, Richard Ed
ward:: and wife, across the street
from the MeCrary home. He had
then gone there and where the trou
The affair culminates a long series
of family differences and the filing
cf a suit for divorce some months ago
by Mrs. MeCrary, the second wife of
the central figure of the trouble. With
the killing of a son of MeCrary two
weeks ago the two had become re
conciled and were living together.
Mr. MeCrary, on returning home,
had found that his wife was at the
home of her son and accordingly had
gone there and where the trouble oc
curred. It was -claimed that Mr. Me
Crary had started quarreling with his
v.ife and stepson and wife and which
had led to anger on the part of all of
the family and led to Mrs. MeCrary
asking the daughter-in-law to call
for police assistance.
The threat to call police had led.
i; was claimed, to MeCrary starting
to choke his wife and which opened
the scene cf activities for the trouble.
The story that MeCrary related to
the officers en their arrival was that
Richard Edwards, the stepson, had
advanced cn him with a stove poker
and that he had fired in defense of
his person while the other members !
of the family claimed that the beat- j
ing up of MeCrary occurred in de--,
fense of Mrs. MeCrary and them- ;
reives in fear of being 3hot by Me
Crary. who had drawn his revolver.
In the affray Richard Edwards was
shot in the thigh as well as through
the w rist by the shots fired from the
.22 calibre revolver in the hands of
MeCrary. the wounds, however, not
being considered dangerous by the
physicians that attended him.
Mr. MeCrary suffered revere scalp;
wounds on the head as the result of
blows from a poker and shovel wield
ed by his stepson and Mrs. MeCrary,
there being twenty stitches required
to close the wounds on the head cf
the injured man.
When the trouble had culminated;
in the battle between the members
of the family a call was made for the
officers and Deputy Sheriff J. E. Lan
caster and Officer David Pickrel of
the night force hurried to the scene
to settle the trouble.
The officers brought MeCrary to
the ofiice of Dr. R. P. Westover where
his injuries were dressed and he was
then taken to the county jail where
he will remain until action is taken
in the case.
Edwards was given medical aid
but wan not arrested pending an in
vestigation cf the case as to whom
was the aggressor in the quarrel that
led to the shooting of Edwards and
the beating up of MeCrary.

McMaken at who?e home he was dis
