Shot His Son.

Heart-rending Tragedy That Happened at Villa Rica, Ga.

A special to the Constitution from Villa Rica says: Thomas Hensler, the young man who was shot by his father Saturday night while climbing through the window to his room, died last night at 9 o’clock. Some one had attempted to enter Mr. Hensler’s house the night before. Mr. Hensler was aroused late Saturday night by his son opening the window. Thinking his son a burglar, he shot him.

Mr. Hensler is nearly heartbroken and fears are entertained that the terrible accident will dethrone his reason and he will do himself bodily harm.
