He entered an Albert Street tailor’s shop and said that he had been shot in the head. He was taken home and then ad mitted to the general hospital. His condition though serious is satisfactory. Detectives who interviewed Morris were told that he had been shot in the bush and were also told where they would find a .22 calibre revolver. The revolver was found near a small pool of blood.
