About one month after the car fire the gang checked into two cabins near Platte, Missouri. On July 19, 1933 police surrounded the cabin and knocked on the door. Clyde said, “One moment let me get dressed.” This gave Clyde enough time to grab his rifle and start shooting. The gang shot their way to the car. Clyde gathered the gang (including Buck) and ran to the garage. Buck died five days later from a shot to the head.
The gang continued to drive through the night. They stopped to rest at a park called Dexfield Park in Iowa. The police found they were at the park and on July 24, 1933 another shoot out started. Buck continued shooting, but Bonnie and Clyde tried getting away. His wife Blanche stayed with him and was captured.
