Custer County Shooting

I just found out my great uncle was accidentally killed in a shooting. My family doesn't have many details about it. Hoping there is someone out there who may remember or be able to find info on it. His name is Wilford Longson, the incident happened in Mackay, Idaho and he was shot on 6 oct 1931. Any info I can get on this is much appreciated. I am not sure if he shot himself or if someone shot him. All that I was told is that it was an accident. Thank you so much, Jessie

My grandfather was Clinton Longson b.1889 in Fall River Ma. He used many names, one of which was Clifford Ross Longson. He left his family in ma. in 1924 and I am looking for any info on where he went next. Anne

Here is the Mackay Miner Article from Oct 8 1931 and a followup article from the Mackay MIner Oct 22 1931.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you so much for the articles. This puts to rest that he did it to himself.

The article says another man shot him so he could not have done it to himself.
