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.
