      Tazewell Man is wounded by Shot - Allegedly inflamed by strong drink, Roy Teek, 30, of the Baptist Valley section of Tazewell County, frightened his wife away from home sunday afternoon, and when he found out that she had taken shelter at the home of a neighbor, Newton Burress, Teek armed himself with a pistol and followed. On his approach, Burress met him in the yard and made an effort to dissuade him from any rash act, which Teek resented, and is quoted as saying: "I am going in the house and kill my wife, if I have to shoot my way in." Burress, in a friendly tone, again undertook to pacify Teek, whereupon he drew a pistol and fired at Burress, the bullet entering the left shoulder. After the shooting Teek left the Burress premises with the announcement that he was going to his own home, procure his rifle and shoot it out with officers when they came to arrest him. Burress was taken to Tazewell, where his wound was dressed and a report of the shooting was made to county authorities. Police Officer John Hawkins, of Tazewell; W.H. Phillips, town sergeant of North Tazewell, and the county jailor left for the Teek home in Baptist Vally at apprehend Teek. When they arrived at the home of Teek's parents, officers were told that Teek was not at home. A search of the premises was instituted and Glen Teek, father of the hunted man, followed the officers closely. Not far from the home Roy Teek was discovered hiding in the tall grass and he immediately opened fire on the officers, but his shots were wild. The officers returned the fire and Teek sought shelter behind a large apple tree. A command from Officer Phillips and a well directed shot caused Teek to drop his rifle. At this stage the elder Teek threatened Officer Phillips, and during the ensuing argument Roy Teek made his escape. Glen Teek was taken to Tazewell on a charge of interfering with an officer in the discharge of his duties. He was later admitted to bail in the sum of $500. Young Teek is still at large.
