The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre took place in Chicago. Al Capone’s gang had fitted a Cadillac touring saloon to the specifications of the Chicago Police Department. Under the guidance of Capone’s Lieutenant Ray Nitty, the murderers sought out the garage of “Bugs” Moran with the intention of killing him. Fearing the possibility of misidentifying Mr. Moran, the gangsters killed all seven men in the garage.
