On this date in 1927 Sam Raplansky, a thirty-year old member of the Madison Street Boys, was hanging out at the mobs HQ, the Madison Street Boys club. At about 10:00 p.m. he left for a while but returned around midnight.
At that time the club was
crowded with various gang members including his brother Harry.
While in the hallway somebody came up to Sam and shot him in the face
twice and once in the body.
Rushing into the hallway, Harry and other gang members found Sam and
carried him outside to a cab for a rushed trip to the hospital. All was
for naught however as
Samuel had been killed instantly.
