Wasn't it Pat Garrett who killed Billy the Kid? Just wondering - I found this.
Sheriff Pat Garrett shoots Henry McCarty, popularly known as Billy the Kid, to death at the Maxwell Ranch in New Mexico. Garrett, who had been tracking the Kid for three months after the gunslinger had escaped from prison only days before his scheduled execution, got a tip that Billy was holed up with friends.
There seems to be some controversy on this.

I trust the History Channel as well. I've heard different versions, but it's an interesting piece of history just the same. :)
