SHOT BY OFFICER SNYDER.
Daniel Farrcll Dangerously Wounded
for Throwing Pebbles at an Offiicer,
Taken to Lackawanna Hospital.
Daniel Fnrrell, a well known yonnij
man of Priceburg, was shot at that place
Sunday evening by Oliiuer James
buyder and at noon yesterday was
brought to the Lackwanua hospital,
where the bullet was extracted, rar-
rell will recover.
From the facts obtained it appears
that though Furrell wus euilty of
wrong doing, the act of the policeman
was unwarranted. The young man,
after being reprimanded for some
petty HCt, playfully threw a handful
of pebbles at the policeman. Officer
Snyder then fired several shots, only
one of which took effect.
Farrell was taken home and then
brought to the Lackawauna hospital
yesterday. He will cot discuss the
affair aud it cannot be learned thut
any legal action will follow.
