A Fatal Shot.
Frank Adamack Shoots Farmer Carson.
The Ball Struck Carson in the Breast and will Probably Cause his Death.
William Carson, a German farmer who lives four miles north west of Barrington, was shot and fatally wounded by Frank Adamack of Algonquin, Wednesday night. When the shooting occurred Adamack and Charles Woodrack, constable at Algonquin, and John Donnelly, of Crystal Lake, were in pursuit of Henry Brinkman, a burglar who had robbed several stores in Algonquin. They called at Carson’s
house and asked for information concerning Brinkman, because he had formerly been employed by Carson as a farm hand. Carson was unable to understand English and Woodrack went to a neighboring farmhouse for an interpreter. During his absence Adamack broke into Carson’s house, and the latter, thinking he intended to rob him, fired at him. Adamack returned the fire and shot Carson in
the breast. When we last heard from Mr. Carson he was still alive, but very low.
