In 1925, George "Bugs" Moran and Hymie Weiss targeted Johnny Torrio after their mob boss, Dean O'Banion, was gunned down in his flower shop. In revenge, Moran and Weiss pulled up behind Torrio and his wife as they were about to enter their home. Blasted with shotgun fire in his gut, chest and face, Torrio remarkable managed to survive. Immediately afterward, Torrio signed over all of his control to Al Capone. He retired to Italy.
