Frank STONE Shot By Brother-In-Law (1927)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, March 3, 1927 - page 4, column 3:

Frank Stone, age 21, son of Leslie Stone, formerly living southwest of town, is in an Indianapolis hospital, possibly dying from the effects of five bullets fired into his body by John Raridan, Stone's brother-in-law.

Raridan and his wife had been having trouble and Raridan had been gone from home for several days. Tuesday, Stone accompanied his sister downtown and then returned with her to her home. As they reached the home, Raridan came out and saying, "Let's not have any argument," began to shoot. Some of his shots took effect in Stone's mouth, one in an arm and one in a shoulder. Mark Stone was in the house and pacified his brother-in-law. The officers took Raridan to jail where he was charged with assault and battery and intent to kill.
