Hunter & Hunted--the lives of two legendary gunfighters In the history of the Wild West there are a number of notable characters whose names will be forever linked. Among them, none are more familiar than the legendary outlaw Billy the Kid and the lawman Pat Garrett. Henry McCarty, also known as William H. Bonney, had a short, troubled life and in just six years, until he was shot dead at the age of 21 years, he progressed from petty thief to outlaw, gunfighter and murderer with eight dead men to his credit. When Billy the Kid rode into Lincoln County, New Mexico it brought him to the attention of Patrick Garrett, who had been elected sheriff of Lincoln County in 1880 having been, in his time, a buffalo hunter and a cowboy. Garrett caught 'the Kid' in 1881, he was tried and sentenced to hang, but escaped from custody. Garrett again set out to hunt him down. He caught up with him three months later at Fort Sumner where, in the middle of the night, he shot him through the heart. Garrett's own career was brought to a close in 1908 when he was also shot to death.
