November 22, 1933 Bonnie and Clyde wounded in Dallas County Texas

Gangsters Bonnie and Clyde (Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow) were both wounded in an ambush set up near Sowers, Texas, by the Dallas County Sheriff's Office, but escaped. Despite having three tires flattened and the steering wheel damaged, Clyde Barrow stole another car four miles down the road and escaped to Oklahoma, where bullets were removed from their legs.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934) and Clyde Chestnut Barrow (March 24, 1909 – May 23, 1934) were an American criminal couple who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression, known for their bank robberies, although they preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. Their exploits captured the attention of the American press and its readership during what is occasionally referred to as the "public enemy era" between 1931 and 1934. They are believed to have murdered at least nine police officers and four civilians. They were killed in May 1934 during an ambush by police near Gibsland, Louisiana.

1933: Buck and Blanche Barrow join the gang

On March 22, 1933, Clyde's brother Buck was granted a full pardon and released from prison, and he and his wife Blanche set up housekeeping with Bonnie, Clyde and Jones in a temporary hideout at 3347 1/2 Oakridge Drive in Joplin, Missouri.
