But Doc becomes alarmed at Bill's suspicions and orders his henchmen to get rid of him. Red Synder (Bud Geary) picks a fight with Bill by insulting Benton's daughter Joan (Helen Talbot).In the gunfight that follows, Red is killed and through a trick, it is blamed as murder by Bill. He is jailed but escapes and interrupts a meeting between Doc and another secret member of his gang, Trigger Chandler (Kenne Duncan), the town gunsmith.
