Rockmart’s Marshal Killed.

A. G. Bullock better known as “El” Bullock, the Marshal of Rockmart, was shot and killed while attempting the arrest of T. P. Weston, on Monday. Weston, a renter on A. B. S. Davis’s place, went to him for money to buy liquor. Mr. Davis refused him the money. He then followed him around the place cutting him with a knife. Mr. Davis went to Rockmart and got a warrant for Weston’s arrest. A. G. Bullock, marshal, with A. S. Williamson, went to arrest him. On arriving at his house, he found him armed with a double-barreled shotgun, on which Bullock ordered him to hold up his hands. Weston then fired one barrel at him, loaded with buck shot, taking effect in his face, killing him instantly, firing the other barrel at Williamson and missing him. Williamson then fired at him with a pistol, missing him also. Weston took to the woods, and is yet at large. Bullock leaves a wife and three little children to mourn his loss.
