After getting off of the train in Kansas City, Nash was being transferred to Caffrey's car outside of Union Station. Three gunmen, allegedly trying to free Nash, ambushed Caffrey and several other law enforcement officers involved with escorting Nash. Caffrey, Police Chief Otto Reed of McAlester, Oklahoma, two Kansas City detectives, and Nash were killed. One of the gunmen was identified as being Charles 'Pretty Boy' Floyd although there is evidence showing that Floyd was not involved with the massacre.
