This action alerts the enemy and an informant which starts the whole shoot out. The end of that conflict is when the sniper shoots the other one with a pistol.

The two men then beat him nearly to death, gouged out his eye, shot him in the head, and then threw his body, tied to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire, into the River.” ( website history).
