Although the bullet from the .22 calibre revolver missed Streu's vital organs, it may have broken several ribs, it was reported. The revolver was discharged when H. T. Bickell, 722 West Miami avenue, yardmaster, picked it up to look at it, according to the report to Deputy Sheriff Roy King, who investigated along with Railroad Detective Clifford Hart. Charles Miles, 1503 Johnson street, a yard brakeman, who sells merchandise, had brought some clothing, a novelty bank and the revolver in holster to the yard locker room with him, according to the report to Deputy King. Miles pulled the revolver out of the holster and laid it on the window connecting the locker room with the office, asking if anyone wanted to buy it. Bickell, who was in the office, picked up the revolver and squeezed the trigger, apparently not realizing it was loaded, Deputy King said. The bullet hit Streu, who was standing only three feet away in the adjoining locker room. The wounded man was rushed to the hospital by Ronnie Gundrum, route 1, Rochester, a yard brakeman, accompanied by Miles.
