Gangster's guns blaze in St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Chicago crime kingpin Al Capone sends soldiers to a North Side garage where they line up seven rival gang members and kill them execution-style in a hail of bullets. The hit will become a press sensation and redouble efforts by authorities to bring Capone's crime reign to an end.

The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre is the name given to the February 14, 1929 murder of seven men of the North Side Irish gang during the Prohibition Era. It resulted from the struggle – between the Irish American gang and the South Side Italian gang led by Al Capone – to take control of organized crime in Chicago. Former members of the Egan's Rats gang were suspected of a significant role in the incident, assisting Capone.
