Chickasaw Enterprise
November 14, 1901

Serious Shooting Monday, at McGee, a shooting affray took place between Dr. TYREE and Will MOAD, which may result
seriously for the latter. The facts, as near as we have obtained them, are as follows. Young MOAD is a prescription clerk in a drug store at McGee and in compounding a prescription for Dr. TYREE a difficulty arose in which it is said Dr. TYREE abused young MOAD and attack him. Some time after TYREE had left the drug store MOAD procured a pistol and proceeded to the office of TYREE and opened fire, shooting TYREE through the hand. After the first shot MOAD'S gun snapped several times and he left. TYREE then procured a shot-gun and as MOAD crossed the street he filled his back and one arm full of fine shot, breaking the arm and lacerating it very badly. Dr. BRANUM was called from this place and went out immediately and dressed the wounds received by MOAD. MOAD is not expected to live. Dr. TYREE was arrested Wednesday by Deputy Marshal GAYLORD and brought to Pauls Valley where he gave bond pending the result of the shooting. Later: Will MOAD died last night at 1:30 from injuries received at the hands of Dr. TYREE.
