George Smith, seventeen year old son of C.C. Smith of Oak Grove was fatally shot Saturday morning near Hickey Lake. Four boys, all of whom attend the Anoka high school, went to Hickey Lake. Two of the boys took a buggy and drove to a farmers to get some oars and put their guns in the back of the buggy. When the oars were put in, one of them exploded the loaded gun and the charge struck Smith in the left temple, injuring the eye, fracturing the skull and tearing off part of the ear. It was thought best to rush him to a hospital in Minneapolis and the 11:30 down train on the cut off was caught and he was taken to the city. No hope was held out for his recovery.
