Baltimore Afro-American, June 24, 1905. I’ve got no complaints about the vividness of the prose here–especially the awesome kicker–but this story is a little bit under-reported. One infers that the maniac Lobb was a sniper shooting from some lofty vantage point. Mounting mayhem after the jump.Give it up to Lobb for marksmanship. But there’s curiously low lethality here in relation to the impressive number of head shots. What the hell kind of weapon was he using?Some San Francisco cops were totally earning their paychecks on this particular Saturday in the summer of 1905.
