Murder at Junction City

The Gazette
January 2, 1901

News came over the telephone Tuesday morning from Junction City that Bob Mullins had shot and killed J. T. Bussell, of the mercantile firm of Burnside & Bussell of that place. The killing occurred about 12 o’clock Monday night.

From what we could learn the murdered man was walking along the street near the Garland ?old stand, returning from a visit. Bob Mullins, with his two brothers Walter and Will, was standing on the opposite side of the street, when Bob fired at Bussell twice with a pistol killing him almost instantly. The murder was committed on the Arkansas side and we learn that Mullins surrendered to the Union County officials. We failed to learn the origin of the trouble.
