[[Washington DC] Evening Star 17 March 1862 page 3]
[transcribed from GenealogyBank, October 2013]
[I searched DC and Virginia newspapers for Luckett/Lucket in 1862-1863 without finding anything else relevant (accessed on GenealogyBank 2 November 2013)]
[also searched DC newspapers for shooting or 91st in March-April 1862]
[I have not been able to identify the alleged victim, who of course may have served in another regiment]

"A SOLDIER SHOT.--A man named Luckett, who is the proprietor of a drinking house on Buzzards' Point, in the Fifth Ward, was arrested by the provost guard yesterday evening, and placed in confinement. His wife was arrested at the same time. It appears that a soldier of the 91st Pennsylvania Regiment was shot at the house of Luckett yesterday evening, and it is feared that the wounds he received will prove fatal. A shotgun was used, and Luckett and his wife are accused of having committed the deed.'
