One Motorist Is Dead, Another Dying, After Road Quarrel.
BUFFALO, N. Y., Dec. 2.—A quarrel between motorists over right of way on a road near the city line is said by witnesses to be the sole reason for a double shooting early today, in which one of the victims was killed and the other probably mortally wounded.
The dead man is Ralph H. Hahn. Joseph J. Tucholz, a sergeant of police on New York Central Railroad's force, is in the hospital with a bullet in his abdomen. A Deputy Sheriff is on guard at his bedside.
The version of the shooting given by girls, who were in Tucholz's machine, is that Hahn's machine was blocking the road and that he refused to make way when Tucholz drove up. A wordy quarrel ensued and then both men drew revolvers and began to shoot. Hahn died at the wheel of his machine with four bullets in his body. Tucholz fell with a bullet in his abdomen.
