Shot fired at Archduke Friedrich

September 21, 1901

A poacher shot at Archduke Friedrich of Austria today, according to a special dispatch sent from Vienna to London and reported by the New York Times.

The Archduke, a cousin of Emperor Franz Joseph, was at his country seat in Hungary, when the shooting took place. The bullet "traversed the Archduke's sleeve," but he was not injured.
