Witness to the Killing Say That
the Patrolman Did Not Fire
a Single Shot.

Albert O. Dalbow, patrolman, was shot four times. One shot, the fatal one, penetrated the right breast and ranged downward, while another went through the abdomen ranging from the left to the right side. This shot was evidently fired after Dalbow had turned to call assistance. Another shot went through the back lower down, and the fourth shot penetrated the fleshy part of the thigh. Officer Dalbow, it is said by those who witnessed the killing, did not fire a single shot and was caught unawares, as he was not expecting trouble when called from police headquarters.

Lulu Pratt, the 14-year-old girl who was killed on the river had only one wound. The shot entered at the base of the brain and came out through the left cheek, leaving a large, ragged hole. Death to her was instantaneous. The body was removed to the morgue of J. W. Wagner. An inquest will be held this morning. Dalbow's body is at the morgue of Leo J. Stewart, 1213 McGee street, where it is being held until funeral arrangements are completed. A special watchman from the police department was placed on duty last night.
