Dateline: Henryville. Six men were killed and more than a dozen were lightly injured when a gunfight erupted in the town square moments before the new sheriff was named.

The wanted criminal Sven Anderson masterminded the attack, evidently in reprisal against Mister Henry Wallinger’s recent efforts against him with regards to the smashing of the gold forging ring last month. Anderson was initially believed killed in firefight but later discovered to have escaped.

Philip Stanson was discovered posthumously to have won the position of sheriff but his death means a new election must be called.
