Juy 14, 1881: We remember the day that Billy the Kid was killed



Billy the Kid was shot to death on this day in 1881.

This is not a Western movie but it sounds like one:    
"Sheriff Pat Garrett shoots Henry McCarty, popularly known as Billy the Kid, to death at the Maxwell Ranch in New Mexico. 
Garrett, who had been tracking the Kid for three months after the gunslinger had escaped from prison only days before his scheduled execution, got a tip that Billy was holed up with friends. 
While Billy was gone, Garrett waited in the dark in his bedroom. 
When Billy entered, Garrett shot him to death."
And so Billy the Kid was dead.    He was only 22!
