In 1873 Bandy shot William Little with a pistol, and was accused of "Malicious Shooting." Bandy & Little were walking along a road, with Little's hand on Bandy's shoulder. Little pulled on Bandy's shoulder, catching his shirt and causing it to tear. Bandy told Little he would shoot him for tearing his shirt and held up his gun. Little lunged at him and Bandy fired.
