Baby Face Nelson

Lester M. Gillis (December 6, 1908 - November 27, 1934), also known as George Nelson but better known as Baby Face Nelson due to his youthful appearance, was a bank robber in the 1930s.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois.

A running gun battle between FBI agents and Nelson on November 27, 1934 resulted in the death of one FBI agent and the mortal wounding of special agent Sam Cowley, who was still able to mortally shoot Nelson. Nelson died at 8PM that night.
