Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker pose for the camera. The criminal lovers' 21-month crime spree ended in a hail of bullets 82 years ago on May 23, 1934.
An FBI wanted poster warns authorities to use "extreme caution," as the duo were known to kill anyone who got in their way.
Parker points a shotgun at Barrow in this image circa 1932. Despite their romanticized reputation, they robbed small-town banks and gas stations across a number of states, killing at least 12 people.
Barrow poses with two firearms on the bumper of a car. Barrow was sent to jail not long after he and Parker met in 1930. He escaped using a gun Parker smuggled to him. He was later recaptured, but he returned to his criminal life after being paroled in February 1932.
Parker was 19 when she met Barrow, and she was married to an imprisoned murderer at the time. She had no criminal record herself until the pair joined forces.
Barrow poses with a small arsenal, including a handgun hanging from the car's hood ornament.
The lovers' criminal activity garnered the attention of the FBI as well as other authorities, who tracked them to a remote area of Louisiana. Early on the morning of May 23, 1934, a posse of police officers from Louisiana and Texas laid in wait among the bushes along a dirt road near Gibsland, Louisiana. Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed, and when they tried to drive away the officers opened fire.
The two never made it out of the car. It is believed that 167 bullets were fired into the car, killing them nearly instantly, according to the FBI.

The pair's end made national headlines. Their 21-month crime spree crossed Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa and Illinois.
