My shortest story ever was in celebration of Sisters in Crime's 25th anniversary. I was one of several Guppies (that's a SinC chapter) who wrote 25-word mysteries. Here's mine.

Fast Eddie fleeced a dozen dowagers, then showered gems on Sweet Sue. Bang, Bang, he's dead. Sue beat the rap with airtight alibi---times twelve.
