John King Fisher was a Texas gunslinger during the heyday of the Old West. He ran with a band of outlaws which carried out frequent raids into Mexico, during a time of massive raids, pillaging, looting, raping, and murder by United States and Mexican bandits. Pressure from the Texas Rangers caused Fisher to retire from this trade, and he began legitimate ranching. By the late 1870s, Fisher had a reputation as being fast with a gun, and was arrested several times for altercations in public by local lawmen. Although well known as a troublemaker, Fisher was well liked in south Texas. In 1884, while in San Antonio, Texas, on business, Fisher came into contact with his old friend, gunfighter and gambler Ben Thompson, who was involved in a feud, and was killed in an ambush there.Very detailed text.
