Danna, John
John Danna – Colorado Springs Gazette – May 15, 1926 – Two Men Killed in Outbreak of Pueblo's Ancient Blackhand War – Danna Brothers Shot Down from Closed Automobile as They Stood on Street; Posses Closing in on Quartet of Slayers Trapped in Coal Camp Near Walsenburg – Pueblo, Saturday, May 15 (AP) – Two men are dead and a third wounded in the most recent outbreak of Pueblo's Blackhand war. Two brothers, the third of one family, were fatally wounded yesterday afternoon by assassins and an innocent bystander was wounded by a stray shot. Pete and Tony Danna died last night. They were shot down at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when they were standing in front of a pool hall in the heart of the business district. Sam English, owner of the pool hall, was shot in the leg. Capture of the murderers is regarded as certain by officers at an early hour this morning for the occupants of the murder car are said to be trapped in a coal camp near Walsenburg and posses from three cities are closing the net drawn around the murderers' rendevous. Late developments last night indicated without a doubt, police and the sheriff said, that the killing was a result of the blackhand war of many years' standing. The murder car, a Hudson coach with curtains drawn, passed slowly in front of the pool hall where the Danna brothers were standing, and shot from sawed-off shotguns cut the brothers down before they had time to draw their own weapons. Doctors in attendance stated that both of the men had received from 30 to 40 shot, the bodies being literally torn to pieces from the heavy charge. Their brother, John, was killed in July, 1925, in an alleged blackhand killing but no arrest had ever been made in that case. The two killed yesterday were said to be leaders of the same faction as Frank Bacino, murdered in Denver a short time ago. Pete Danna was out on $10,000 bond in connection with the notorious black hand battle near Baxter, Colo., in September, 1922, in which John Ingo, Dominio Ingo and Charles Carlino were killed. Carlino was a brother of Sam Carlino, one of the four men Pete Danna alleged to have been in the automobile from which the shooting was done Wednesday. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Death Tally Five Each - Pueblo, May 15 - With the killing of the two Danna brothers Friday Pueblo's black-hand war has accounted for 10 men in a short span of years, and the count is even, both sides having killed five. Such is the statement today, by one of the recognized leaders of the Sicilians of this city, who characterized the Bacino murder in Denver as a move in Pueblo's war, which originated over liquor troubles shortly after Colorado went dry. The Sicilian told an Associated Press representative today that up until the time of the killing of John Danna in the summer of 1925, that faction had lost but one man, Joe Piscopo, husband of the woman now held for the murder of Frank Bacino. Bacino's murder followed and then the killing yesterday, which brought the total to five. The first killing in the war was that of one Pete Viola, who was shot in Bessemer while riding on his delivery wagon. This man belonged to the faction blamed for yesterday's killing. A Carlino and a Mulay, relatives of those named in dying statements of the Dannas as their slayers, were killed and then this faction imported two gunmen. Both of these were killed. Two men, Pete Walker and Pete LaRocco, were added to the deathbed list as occupants of the cars. These men are both strangers in this city. Inquest has been set for Monday afternoon.

Pete Danna - Colorado Springs Gazette - May 15, 1926 - Two Men Killed in Outbreak of Pueblo's Ancient Blackhand War - Danna Brothers Shot Down from Closed Automobile as They Stood on Street; Posses Closing in on Quartet of Slayers Trapped in Coal Camp Near Walsenburg – Pueblo, Saturday, May 15 (AP) – Two men are dead and a third wounded in the most recent outbreak of Pueblo's Blackhand war. Two brothers, the third of one family, were fatally wounded yesterday afternoon by assassins and an innocent bystander was wounded by a stray shot. Pete and Tony Danna died last night. They were shot down at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when they were standing in front of a pool hall in the heart of the business district. Sam English, owner of the pool hall, was shot in the leg. Capture of the murderers is regarded as certain by officers at an early hour this morning for the occupants of the murder car are said to be trapped in a coal camp near Walsenburg and posses from three cities are closing the net drawn around the murderers' rendevous. Late developments last night indicated without a doubt, police and the sheriff said, that the killing was a result of the blackhand war of many years' standing. The murder car, a Hudson coach with curtains drawn, passed slowly in front of the pool hall where the Danna brothers were standing, and shot from sawed-off shotguns cut the brothers down before they had time to draw their own weapons. Doctors in attendance stated that both of the men had received from 30 to 40 shot, the bodies being literally torn to pieces from the heavy charge. Their brother, John, was killed in July, 1925, in an alleged blackhand killing but no arrest had ever been made in that case. The two killed yesterday were said to be leaders of the same faction as Frank Bacino, murdered in Denver a short time ago. Pete Danna was out on $10,000 bond in connection with the notorious black hand battle near Baxter, Colo., in September, 1922, in which John Ingo, Dominio Ingo and Charles Carlino were killed. Carlino was a brother of Sam Carlino, one of the four men Pete Danna alleged to have been in the automobile from which the shooting was done Wednesday. Fairplay Flume – September 3, 1926 – Pueblo – Evidence to prove a complete alibi will be offered by the three alleged Danna slayers who surrendered to police, it was announced here by attorneys for the three. (They are) Pete Larocco, Pete Carlino and Carlo Mulay, who are charged with shooting down the two Danna brothers as they stood before a soft drink parlor on May 14 last. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Airplanes Hunt Pueblo Blackhand Slayers in Mountains Near Aguilar - Cordner and Pace, Mail Flyers, Aid Law in Search for Gang Who Shot Down Two Brothers on Streets of Smelter City; 10 Dead in "War" Up to Date - Pueblo, May 15 - Two airplanes, engaged for several hours in hunting down an alleged Backhand gang in the rugged mountain region, near Aguilar, south of here, returned to this city tonight without finding any trace of the alleged slayers of Pete and Tony Danna, who were shot and killed here yesterday afternoon within a block of the heart of the local business district as the two brothers stood on the sidewalk in front of a pool hall. Sam Danna, a third brother escaped a similar fate, because he remained in his automobile at the curbing. The murderers fled southeast from Pueblo thru a thinly populated section of the country, past the wilds of Rattlesnake Buttes to Aguilar, east of Trinidad. Saturday afternoon two airships took off from the local flying field, carrying a machine gun, tear bombs and heavily armed occupants. Lieut. Floyd A. Pace was at the controls of the first plane, accompanied by a local newspaper man. The second ship carried Captain Cordner and Lieut. W.W. Messmore, Colorado National Guard flying officers. Carried Tear Bombs - Winding their way south from Pueblo, the flyers searched the wild, rugged region near Aguilar and after communicating with Sheriff Harry Capps in Walsenburg, flew to El Moro, a desolate spot where the "29th Day of July" saloon stands. This old saloon is said to be a black-handers' hangout and back in the early days an Italian priest was slain there on the date indicated in the name of the place. In this region the flyers had no chance to land without wrecking but heavily armed with rifles and revolvers and with tear bombs ready they circled low over the rugged hills scanning the earth with powerful field glasses in vain. The men who are the object of the sensational man hunt are Carlo and John Mulay, Pete and Sam Carlino, Pete Laroco and Pete Walker, all named in a statement by the Dannas as having participated in the shooting. Plans were under way tonight by peace officers at Trinidad and Walsenburg to organize posses tomorrow for a thoro search of the El Moro district. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 16, 1926 – Death Tally Five Each - Pueblo, May 15 - With the killing of the two Danna brothers Friday Pueblo's black-hand war has accounted for 10 men in a short span of years, and the count is even, both sides having killed five. Such is the statement today, by one of the recognized leaders of the Sicilians of this city, who characterized the Bacino murder in Denver as a move in Pueblo's war, which originated over liquor troubles shortly after Colorado went dry. The Sicilian told an Associated Press representative today that up until the time of the killing of John Danna in the summer of 1925, that faction had lost but one man, Joe Piscopo, husband of the woman now held for the murder of Frank Bacino. Bacino's murder followed and then the killing yesterday, which brought the total to five. The first killing in the war was that of one Pete Viola, who was shot in Bessemer while riding on his delivery wagon. This man belonged to the faction blamed for yesterday's killing. A Carlino and a Mulay, relatives of those named in dying statements of the Dannas as their slayers, were killed and then this faction imported two gunmen. Both of these were killed. Two men, Pete Walker and Pete LaRocco, were added to the deathbed list as occupants of the cars. These men are both strangers in this city. Inquest has been set for Monday afternoon. Colorado Springs Gazette 8-23-1926 - Three of Pueblo's Mafia Surrender - Only Two of Alleged Danna Slayers at Liberty; Had $3,500 Price on Heads - Pueblo, Aug. 22 - Another sensational chapter in the history of the Mafia "blackhand" rum war in Pueblo was written today when Pete Carlino, Carlo Mulay and Vita (Pete) La Rocco, alleged "blackhand" members of the warring Mafia factions in Pueblo, with the price of $3,500 on their heads, surrendered themselves to S.E. Thomas, sheriff of Pueblo county, at 7 o'clock this morning. The three men refused to talk, intimating that no statements would be made. At 1:30 p.m. May 14, a large "death car" drove thru the business district, stopping for an instant in front of the Monte Carlo pool hall to pour a hail of lead slugs, fired from sawed-off shotguns, into the front of the building. Standing there were Tony and Pete Danna, who slumped to the sidewalk even before the machine had time to move on. Sam English, standing within the establishment, received a number of slugs in the right leg. Deathbed statements, made at the hospital before officials the next day, named Pete and Sam Carlino, Carlo and John Mulay and "Pete" La Rocco as their slayers. Large posses searched the hills for weeks without results. An executive proclamation placed a reward of $2,500 on their heads, in addition to $1,000 offered by Pueblo county. Sam Carlino and John Mulay are still at large, with prices on their heads. The score between the Danna faction and the opposing faction is now even, it is said. Prior to this last double killing and the slaying of an alleged Sicilian "blackhander" some time ago in Bessemer, on the south side of the city, it was said that the count stood five in favor of the Dannas, one on records for the opposition.
