Lassen Man Shot in Jealous Row
November 23, 1932

A jealous argument ended in a shooting here today, when Joe Stanislau, alleged bootlegger, fired a shot at Ed Wasco, guest at his party, for suspected attentions to his red-headed wife.

Sheriff James Leavitt took Wasco to the hospital, where physicians extracted the bullet form Wasco’s hip.

Stanislau was gone on arrival of the sheriff at the scene of the shooting, but he returned later and was taken into custody. Both men were said to have been drinking.
