Best Answer

The James/Younger gang planned to rob the first national bank. Once inside the bank, they couldn't open the safe. Then they started shooting and two townspeople fell to the ground. As the gang escaped, other store owners fired back, wounding five robbers and killing two. Later a group went after the gang. They captured three robbers and killed one. Only Jesse and Frank James escaped.
