September 7, 1928, thirty-six year old Antonio Lombardo and his bodyguards were confronted by two well dressed men carrying guns. Lombado started running across Madison but didn't make it far. Gunned down in broad daylight. He hit the pavement face down in front of the office crowd. Lombardo was a trusted advisor, and third man, to Al Capone. It's believed that Bugs Moran leader of the North Side Gang had issued the hit on Lombardo knowing this would be a blow to Capone. As with so many of these mob its, the real gunmen were never apprehended.
