American mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel started the Las Vegas strip in 1946 by building the Flamingo Hotel and Casino. The hotel closed later that year, only to reopen in 1947.
On June 20, 1947, Bugsy was sitting in the living room of his girlfriend's house reading the Los Angeles Times. A car pulled into the driveway, and fired an M-1 carbine through the window. Bugsy was shot several times, including twice in the head.
