Man shoots father twice in same day

From the Chicago Sunday Tribune
October 11, 1925
Rock Island, Illinois

A man pushed his father into a third-floor elevator shaft. When the elder man escaped death, the son shot his father in the leg as the father slid down the elevator’s cable the threw the gun at him. The father seemed to be fine with letting the “prank” go, went to breakfast with his son who purchased a new revolver, and shot his father in the mouth. The father survived this attack as well, and the younger man was arrested while attempting to visit his father in the hospital.
