Perry and Allison commenced to slamming the door violently, contrary to Section 9 in the Revised Statue. They were swinging pistols and firing their guns in the street.
Mr. Fresch a-spied Matt Perry creeping up the alley between the store and where H. J. Smith's Son is today (H.J. Smith and Sons would not open until 1876). He saw Perry fire a shot through the window, narrowly missing Mrs. Fresch. The round ball rolled about the floor of the store.
The two men then headed up the street where they began to verbally abuse and terrorize the Fresch's son with obscenities and death threats. At this point a crew of workmen attempted to avoid the two scalawags, but eventually had had enough. The workmen took away Perry and Allison's guns - - and then beat the tar out of them.
Today, we know Luke Allison's great, great (maybe 3 greats) nephew as Wayne Allison, bike mechanic at Brooks bicycle shop : )
