Bullet Claims an Innocent Victim

Sept. 22, 1919, Vigilantes

Sept. 22, 1919: "The Vigilantes" is playing at the Victory Theater, 838 S. Broadway.

Sept. 22, 1919, Shooting

Sept. 22, 1909: Nicolas Rodriguez is killed when a bullet ricochets several times and strikes him as he rides his bicycle near 3rd Street and Traction Avenue.
