Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois
The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre claims the lives of seven men

Seven men, lined up against a wall, were murdered by four men, two of whom were dressed as uniformed police officers and two in suits. One man, Frank Gusenberg, survived briefly, being stabilized in the hospital. When questioned by police as to who shot him, Gusenberg replied “no one shot me.” He died 3 hours later from the 14 bullet wounds he received during the Massacre.
