John Dillinger was born June 22, 1903, in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a boy he committed petty theft. In 1924 he robbed a grocery store and was caught and jailed. He escaped and he and his gang headed to Chicago to put together one of the most organized and deadly bank robbing gangs in the country. They continued on a crime spree until arrested. This pattern continued until he was shot by the FBI in 1934.
