He shoot, and then he was run down.

Thus, he was severely wounded and he died in a matter of minutes.

No one ever visited its white grave, nor any words were ever written on it.

Explain.

Welcome to the forum!

He 1 = He 2 = He 3 = He 4?

Are all "he"s HAM?

Its = It?

He: H? A? M?

he(1) = he(2) = he(3) = he(4)?

shoot: to fire a firearm? A bow? crossbow? to throw something? to take photographs? to grow rapidly? move rapidly?

then: Less than a second after shooting? Seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Decades? Centuries?

run down: to drive over him? to trample on him? to criticise?

die: cease to be alive?

minutes: after being run down?

white grave: something covered by snow? Ice? A real grave dug by people for the purpose of burying somebody?

Would it be possible to visit the white grave? To write words on it (provided someone managed to get there)?

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks! :-) First of all, sorry for two little grammatical errors:
1) "He shoot" should read "He shot";
2) "its white grave" should read "his white grave";

He: H? YES A? M? Irrelevant

he(1) = he(2) = he(3) = he(4)? YES

shoot: to fire a firearm? YES

then: Seconds? YES

run down: to drive over him? NO to trample on him? PLEASE REPHRASE to criticise? NO

die: cease to be alive? YES

minutes: after being run down? YES

white grave: something covered by snow? YES Ice? IRRELEVANT A real grave dug by people for the purpose of burying somebody? NO

Would it be possible to visit the white grave? YES To write words on it (provided someone managed to get there)? DOYD

Did the shot trigger an avalanche that buried him?

******** SPOILER *********



Kudos Galfisk! The shot triggered the avalanche burying him.

I read it on some Lateral Thinkin website. Admittedly my version was not very hard, if I remember well, the original version simply stated something like "He shot and died", with hints like "He didn't shoot himself" and the likes.
