Shot by an Italian

Ex-Policeman of Johnstown Met Death Last Saturday Evening at Hands of an Italian

"Lew" Davis, formerly a policeman on the Johnstown force under ex-Mayor John Pendry, was shot and killed by an Italian last Saturday evening in Woodvale. Davis, it is said, stooped to "jolly" the Italian who became insolent when Davis struck him. The Italian then drew a revolver and shot Davis, making good his escape. Davis died at the Memorial Hospital. He is survived by a wife and several children. The Italian has not yet been located.
