Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma Times newspaper. Caption: "Bullet hole below rear window of car stolen from deputy U. S. Marshal Frank Trujillo in western Oklahoma (near Elk City) during a transport of prisoners is mute evidence that the California man who drove up on the escape tried to stop the fugitives. He jumped out and fired at the men as they fled in the marshal's auto, leaving Trujillo and a guard they had beaten bleeding in a ditch. The passing motorist has remained unidentified. He lingered long enough to make sure the wounded men were loaded into another passing motorist's station wagon, then went on his way. Meanwhile, the fugitives, yet to be found, hid the car in a farm barn near Snyder."
