Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Good morning. Today is the 74th day of the year. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle for March 10, 1901, ran a story with the headline “Jealousy, Pistol Shots, Police: A First-Rate Melodrama Enacted at the Corner of Front and Water Streets.” The assailant was Vito Truglio, 46, of Bridge Street, and the victim, who police said was expected to live, was his nephew, Giovanni Truglio, 21. Both were tailors. Vito had been in the country for 12 years, and Giovanni had been here for four years. According to Vito, not only had his nephew been trying to steal his new wife, he had tried to hit him on the head with a hammer.
