Bill owed Tutt money but Bill didn't have the money to pay back Tutt. Tutt decided to take Bill's watch since he owed him. Bill didn't want the whole town knowing so he told Tutt not to wear the watch but he wore it anyways regardless of what he said.
The next day Bill was still angry that Tutt wore his watch even after he told him not to. Bill confronted Tutt about it and it only caused for a shoot out to break loose.
Bill and Tutt decided to line up to shoot at each other. When they shot at each other Tutt missed Bill but Bill had shot him in the rib.
