Dr. Moorefield Shot By Editor's Son, 1917

From the Charlotte Medical Journal, 1917

Dr. J.L. Moorefield of Mount Airy was shot at that place on December 23 by Will Johnson, son of the editor of the Mt. Airy News.

The injuries when this news item was dictated were considered very serious—possibly fatally so. Dr. Moorefield has been a resident of Mt. Airy for about a year and employed as a physician for the three furniture factories located in that city. He was originally from Virginia. The cause for the shooting is not known.
