Outlaw Tom Folliard had an accidental—and fatal—encounter with a posse.
Billy the Kid pal Tom Folliard had some bad luck. He and another outlaw were riding down a street in Fort Sumner, New Mexico Territory. They ran into Lincoln County Sheriff Pat Garrett, who ordered them to surrender. Folliard pulled his pistol; Garrett shot him in the chest. The other outlaw (along with the Kid and several associates) managed to escape. Folliard, in agony, died less than an hour later as Garrett and his posse played cards.
