Harold Green Killed
He Was Accidentally Shot at New York Last Week
Harold Green, son of Orlie H. Green of Locust Point, was fatally shot in the 22d regiment armory at New York on Tuesday of last week. The young man had been employed at New York for several years and was a member of Company K of the 22d regiment. On Tuesday night he attended the regular rifle practice of the company and after the practice started upstairs for the drill room. With him were two other members of the company, one of whom, Charles Grampstedt, had made the highest score in the rifle practice. He was explaining how easy his rifle was on the trigger and thinking that the rifle was empty he pulled the trigger. A cartridge that was in the rifle was discharged and the bullet entered Greenís breast. He was taken to Roosevelt hospital, where he died on Wednesday.
Green was twenty years old. He graduated from the Atlantic Highlands public school and about two years ago he got a position in an insurance office at New York. He was a young man of exemplary habits and a disposition that made him popular with all who knew him. His prospects in life were bright and his tragic death was a great shock to his family and friends. The young manís mother died several years ago at Atlantic Highlands. Besides a father he leaves a sister, Edna, and a brother, Clarence. Another brother, Monmouth Green, died at Atlantic Highlands a year or so before his motherís death. The Green family formerly lived at Freehold, where Mr. Green conducted the hotel Belmont.
