Mandonia! Mandonia! What make your big head so hard?
On this day in 1922 forty-four year old Salvatore Maida was standing outside his café talking with his younger brother and two other men when Rosido Mandonia came up and shot him at point blank range in the chest. Mandonia tried to run away but he ran right into two police officers who brought him back to the scene and despite his pleads of innocence witnesses shouted, "He is the fellow who did it."
