On this day – May 23, 1934 – Bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde are ambushed by police and killed in Black Lake, Louisiana.
Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow were well-known American outlaws, robbers, and criminals who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. The Barrow Gang included at times Buck Barrow, Blanche Barrow, Raymond Hamilton, W.D. Jones, Joe Palmer, Ralph Fults, and Henry Methvin. Their exploits captured the attention of the American public during the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1934. Though known today for his dozen-or-so bank robberies, Barrow in fact preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and committed several civilian murders. The couple themselves were eventually ambushed and killed in Louisiana by law officers. Their reputation was cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde.
