Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Ike Clanton panicked as well and ran towards Wyatt pleading for his life. Doc instantly killed Tom with blasts from his shotgun.

    He allows no one to get too close or to approach from the rear. A timer is started when the signal is given. The two fired at the same time, but Hickok's shot hit Tutt in the heart, while Tutt's shot missed.
