S.G. Shaw, a merchant-farmer of Homer who was seriously injured in a cafe argument here last week, died in a Shreveport Hospital Tuesday night.
No charges have been filed in connection with the death, which resulted from a pistol blow over the head, stated Graydon Kitchens, assistant district attorney.
Shaw was taken after the fight to the local sanitarium, where he spent two or three days. He was transferred Friday to Shreveport, where it was found necessary to operate for the removal of a blood clot on the brain.
Funeral services were held at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the Homer Methodist church, with the Rev. B.C. Taylor, pastor, officiating.
The man is survived by his widow; one son, Nolan Shaw one daughter, Mary Ann Shaw; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Shaw of Cross Roads; two sisters, Miss Vivian Shaw of Shreveport and Mrs. D.L. Laughlin of Baton Rouge, and five brothers, L.N. Shaw and George Shaw of Homer, Robert Shaw and Ardis Shaw of Cross Roads, and Jack Shaw of Alexandria.
