Thomas had, a few days prior to the shooting, assaulted Mr. Stallworth’s wife during his absence from home, – and on arriving home and learning of the ordeal through which his wife had gone, shouldered a shot gun and went in search of the fiend, He soon located the negro and went to Tuscaloosa, at which place he learned the negro was. Mr. Stallworth met his game on the streets ; the negro recognized him and turned to run, at which time Stallworth emptied the contents of both barrels of his gun into him, killing him almost instantly.
