This day in history: ‘St. Valentine’s Day Massacre’ takes place in Chicago

On February 14, 1929, seven of Moran’s men were shot in a Chicago garage. One of the men, Frank Gusenberg, was still alive when police arrived on the scene. The police tried to coax information from Gusenberg as he took his last breaths, but he refused to say anything about what had just transpired. He died minutes later. The police determined that the shooters were dressed as officers and pretended to be arresting Moran’s men before they sprayed them with bullets.
