'Two men can keep a secret ...as long as one of them is dead.' Vincent 'Mad Dog' Coll wasn't originally from the Bronx but his mean temper and killer instinct made him the chief enforcer in the Schultz gang. At age 19, he killed an innocent bartender for not buying Schultz's beer, and it wasn't long before he started raiding places with his own gang, robbing Schultz's bootlegging empire. Getting too big for his boots, he shot a !ve-year-old kid by mistake in a bungled attempt to assassinate Shultz's main man in Harlem,Joey Rao. Everyone said it was the Mad Dog's last hit. On the night of February 8, 1932, a man with a Thompson sub-machine gun walked in and pumped him full of lead. He died in a pool of his own blood.
