Ranch hand Javier Garcia had reportedly been "acting weird"
after returning from a week-long vacation from his job at the K4
Ranch near Prescott, Arizona. Ranch owner Linda Kieckhefer and her
father, Chuck Sheppard, would soon find out just how far askew
Garcia's mind had gone. As the pair made their way from the main
house to the barn one Friday evening, Garcia burst out of his
quarters brandishing a large knife. In the ensuing attack,
Kieckhefer and Sheppard both suffered serious cuts; but when the
blade broke, Garcia retreated to re-arm himself. John Kieckhefer,
Linda's husband, then attempted to prevent a second attack with a
20-ga. shotgun, but missed and also was stabbed. Finally, another
ranch hand's wife passed Sheppard a .357 Mag. handgun, which he
fired at Garcia. Two bullets found their mark and gave Sheppard time
to retreat into the ranch house. Garcia continued his rampage still
attempting to get at his victims before finally collapsing in death.
"You tell them, by God, I shot that S.O.B., and I'd do it again,"
said the 82-year-old Sheppard after defending his daughter's life
and ending the vicious attack.
