Joseph Cigna and Anthony Justiano were standing on a corner in New York City's Little Italy on this date back in 1931. Eight other guys were chatting it up with the duo when a quartet of of gunmen walked up and pulled out some pistols.
Cigna and Justiano apparently knew they were the targets because both of them immediately fled. The gunmen followed letting loose with a
barrage of gunfire. One of the duo almost made it into a tenement but
dropped dead at the door while the other pitched forward on the
sidewalk. Autopsies proved the gunmen to be competent marksmen. Cigna
was hit by eight bullets and Justiano ten.
