  • Gangster, Al Capone's hitmen killed 5 of Bugsy Moran's gang, plus a doctor, who liked hanging out with mobsters, and the mechanic to keep the Moran gang's cars running. They were lined up against a wall and shot in the back. Two men dressed as police "led" the hitmen out of the building and into a car, thereby making the neighbors believe the police had arrested the shooters. A neighbor entered the building after the "police" had left, saw the carnage, and THEN the police were called. Altho Capone was behind it, he was in Miami, FL at the time, giving him the perfect alibi. No one was ever convicted of the massacre.
