Alfred Y. Allee wasn’t afraid to use his gun. The Karnes Co., Texas deputy shot and killed a robbery suspect in 1882. He was arrested because the killing was suspicious and reportedly an act of revenge, but he was not convicted.
A few years later, Allee gunned down another lawman in a fair fight; again, he was arrested but acquitted. And in 1888, he killed train robber Brack Cornett (photo) during a pursuit.
Allee must not have had his gun during a barroom brawl in Frio in 1896—he was stabbed to death.
