While Sheriff Ben Lockwood and his deputy Johnny Davis are in the office, a man enters with a message from Dr. Miles Gillis. These messages have been arriving periodically via prisoners released from prison. They were locked up with Gillis who is a Northern doctor jailed for treason for treating Confederate soldiers during the war. He is now returning to his home town after his release. Four men whom he threatened at his trial fear he plans revenge. Sheriff Lockwood has sent a message for his previous deputy Bronco Layne who is also friends with Gillis after being treated by him. Bronco believes the doctor when he says he's forgiven everyone. However, when an inebriated Lockwood receives a midnight visit from Gillis telling him all four men will die, Bronco becomes concerned. After a shot is fired while Gillis is in the street, they decide to put a 24 hour watch on him. Soon one of them dies followed by more of them. Written by rbecker28
