John Jordan

John Jordan, a discarded lover of Miss Coyne of Taylorsville, Pa., was fatally shot by Miss Coyne Mon. night, while attempting with a gang of roughs to force an entrance to the Coyne house to eject one Oarnoshan[?], who had supplanted Jordan in his affections of the woman, and to close the tragedy, Miss Coyne, while handing the pistol to her son, accidentally discharged it, the ball lodging in Miss Coyne's side, and producing a serious and possibly fatal wound.
