Bonnie and Clyde were hiding out at the residence in the country owned by Ivan Methvin, the father of Henry (member of the Barrow Gang). Ivan made a deal for a full pardon for his son for charges in Texas by providing information as to their whereabouts, when they went with their car, the road they used to return to the country. At 1:30 AM, the authorities set up blinds with tree branches about 25 feet from the road. They placed themselves about 10 feet apart and simply waited. They waited until about 9:10 AM, heard the vehicle coming down the road. One of the men waiting stepped onto the road, challenged them. Clyde stopped the car, and before he or Bonnie could reach for their guns the posse opened fire. The car ended up in the ditch, the posse kept on firing 167 rounds into the car. When the authorities approached,,, dead with 50 rounds in each one of them.
