He shot one with his musket and two more with his pistols . He was shot in the face, clubbed in the head with a musket butt and bayoneted a number times. Despite his grievous wounds he lived another 18 years! Accounts of this vary greatly in details and the story gets better as told over over the last 200 years as usual.
