A Florida house notorious for the longest gun battle in FBI history and even the subject of a Hollywood movie is up for sale almost 80 years later.
OCKLAWAHA, Florida (AP) - The central Florida house known as the Ma Barker hideout, site of the longest shootout in FBI history, is up for sale.
The two-story house was slated to be auctioned in October and drew international attention, but the event was canceled when agents said their clients were cool to the $1 million starting bid. It's now listed at $889,000.
The house was made famous in 1935 when fugitive gangster Fred Barker and his mother, Kate "Ma" Barker, were killed in a shootout with the FBI. Ma Barker had been labeled Public Enemy No. 1 by the federal government for a spree of murders, kidnappings and robberies throughout the Midwest.
The Orlando Sentinel reports the sale will include FBI documents, maps from the shootout, and photographs showing the bodies.
