Thriller Thursday - Accidental Shooting

From the Chillicothe, Missouri Constitution-Tribune, December 10, 1929:

William Harper Very Low

William Harper, attendant at the city dump ground, who was accidentally wandered Sunday morning when a revolver he was carrying dropped from his belt and was discharged, the bullet penetrating his right breast, is very low at the Chillicothe hospital and is not expected to survive the night.  An error was made yesterday in giving his name as John.

He was carrying a .38 pistol in his belt; he was stooping over and pistol fell to ground and discharged accidentally.
