Hodges, a negro man, got him in a car and carried him near the home of Emery Cobb, another negro. Part of the crowd, it Is said went into the cabin of the Cobb negro. As they entered Cobb fired his shotgun and one of the Klansmen shot, wounded in the hand and perhaps about the body. Several other shots were fired. After the smoke of battle had cleared away it was found that Lillie Cobb, wife of Emery Cobb, had been shot in the abdomen. She was carried to a Birmingham hospital where she died Monday afternoon.
