1. September 22-28, 2017: This week in Memphis history
- Saturday, September 23, 2017
1933: George Barnes, better known as “Machine Gun Kelly,” and three other people were arrested at a house on East Rayner Street for the kidnapping of oil millionaire Charles Urschel. Barnes was the first nationally known fugitive to be captured by the FBI. On the run from the FBI, Barnes returned to Memphis, the city where he had grown up and attended Central High School.
The house on Rayner Street belonged to his former brother-in-law. After a restless night that probably involved a lot of drinking, Barnes heard the next day’s newspaper hit the front porch and unlocked and opened the door to retrieve it. He didn’t lock the door.
Confronted by agents with their guns drawn, Barnes allegedly said, “Don’t shoot, G-men,” according to accounts of the capture over the decades. The FBI’s own website acknowledges that didn’t happen, attributing the “G-men” name for FBI agents to a comment Barnes made after he was in jail. Still other research shows it was Kelly’s wife and accomplice, Kathryn, who used the term.
Most Memphians didn’t know Barnes was Machine Gun Kelly until the national publicity about the arrest and Barnes, in the Shelby County jail, began recognizing and calling out the names of police officers he knew.
