Patrick Floyd "Pat" Garrett (June 5, 1850 – February 29, 1908) was an American Old West lawman, bartender, and customs agent who was best known for killing Billy the Kid. He was also the sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico
Pat Garrett's most famous kill did not come from a gun battle. In 1881, he snuck into Pete Maxwell’s house and shot notorious outlaw Billy the Kid to death. - from True West Magazine - #OldWest #WildWest
