Fox then informed Monty that he was armed, and if he came into the house he would be shot. This only angered Monty, who at once started for the room Fox was in. When he came near Fox fired into the ceiling of the room. This did not frighten Monty and the next shot took effect in Monty's right breast penetrating the upper portion. Monty was at once taken to the Everett ett hospital. The attending physicians have so far failed to locate the bullet. Fox gave himself up to the Sheriff.
