George Baker, a rancher who is a respected pillar of the community, turns out to have been a wanted man before he settled down in Latigo, as the town discovers when a bounty hunter shoots him for the reward. Marshal Scott arrests him, but George's wife, wanting revenge, sends for George's brother, a vicious outlaw who heads a gang of killers. Gib tries to raise a posse to defend the bounty hunter from the approaching gang, but no one in town wants to risk his life for the man who killed their friend. Written by
