Arrest of Francis 'Two Gun' Crowley

Meet Kiki

Mandatory retirement

Normally those gangsters put on the spot were spry young fellers in their 20's or 30's but todays victim, in a later era, would have qualified for the senior citizens discount at McDonald's. Sixty-five year old Frank Lauritano was called a "Well-to-do" resident of the Brownsville –East New York section of Brooklyn and had been arrested three years previously for his connection with a policy game.

After finishing dinner on this date in 1930, Lauritano took a walk to the jewelry store to have his eye glasses fixed. As he approached his house on the return trip, three men fired anywhere from four to seven shots killing him. Hearing the shots, neighbors rushed out on their porches in time to see three men running to a car, which whisked them away
