Thriller Thursday - The Accidental Shooting of Everett K Stephens

Here is another I wish I had a newspaper article for this because sometimes you wonder how "accidental" a shooting is, especially if no one is involved but the victim.  Today's victim is Everett K Stephens, born in 1866 and died in 1930, the son of Columbus Stephens and Hattie Percival.  Certainly the 1930 time frame after the "Crash" in 1929, saw a lot of "accidental" shootings. Everett's death certificate shows his occupation as a merchant.

Whether or not it was truly accidental, it surely was tragic.
