VILLAGE SHOOTING OUTRAGE. The little Devonshire village of Blech Tor. rington, some 14 miles from Okehampton, has been the scene of an inexplicable shooting out- rage. On Sunday evening, as two young women named Alice Ivy and Maud Slade were return- ing from chapel, they were shot at and seriously injured by man who at once made off. Learn- ing of the outrage about ten o'clock, the village constable, Police-constable Kite, cycled some three miles to Ley Farm, where a young man named Robert Payne Lamble resided with his grandfather, Edwin Lamble. The place was in arkness when the constable knocked at the door, but the grandfather opened a bedroom window and asked what was the matter. The officer said he wished to speak to him, and a few minutes later the door was opened and he was invited inside. Almost immediately he saw the muzzle of a gun about two feet away pointed at him. He knocked the gun aside, just as it was discharged, and a bullet crashed through a plaster wall three inches from his head. On looking around Kite saw someone moving in the semi-darkness near the kitchen table, and a hand, in which something glistened, raised as if to strike. It was young Lamble. T he constable closed with him, threw him to the floor, and found that he had a spiked hammer in his hand. At that moment others, who had been watching various entrances, entered the house, and Lamble said, "I am finished, I'll give in. What have I done?" The cbnstable told him that he was suspected of shooting the two young women, and Lamble, it is alleged, replied, "I hope I haven't hurt them much." He was taken to Holsworthy Police- station, and on Monday was brought before the magistrates, charged with shooting at Police- constable Kite with intent to murder him. He was remanded in custody.
