Pat Bohen, who resided on Black Sulphur creek, this county, at one time, was shot and killed near Glenwood in the latter part of last week, by a man named V.W. Cooley, who had rented a portion of Bohen’s ranch. A dispute arose between the men concerning pasturing on the rented land, and they got into a fight over the matter. Bohen, who was a powerful man, was getting the best of the fight when Cooley drew a gun and shot him dead. The shooting seems to be justified.
