Arapahoe, like Cloud Chief, celebrated her fifth anniversary with a killing.

A young man by the name of ACHISO was quarreling with an old man by the name of COOTS over the leasing of a pasture. As Coots turned to leave Achison shot him through the body, and Coots turned and shot Achison shattering his leg badly. Coots died soon after, but Achison will probably recover.
