Have you ever heard of an outlaw called “Three-Shooter Bill?”

Dallas, Texas

“Three-Shooter Bill” was a two-bit outlaw and small time con man who earned his nickname because he was only half as bad as his crony, “Six-Shooter Bill.” He pursued his rackets in several small New Mexico towns. Few know the circumstances of his demise and fewer care.
