Description


March 20th, 1882 -

Wyatt Earp chased Frank Stilwell over 100 yards over train tracks at the Tucson Train Depot and killed him at point blank range with both barrels of his shotgun.

Wyatt killed this man under the belief that he had been culpable in the murder of his brother, Morgan Earp, although there were no charges nor specific evidence to enforce that belief.

Wyatt Earp and others were indicted for murder in regards to this killing, and you can read the indictment here: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Grand_Jury_Indictment_for_the_Killing_of_Frank_Stilwell
