weiss murray murder inquest with steve juranovich sitting at a table in a room

Informal portrait of Steve Juranovich sitting at a table in a room in Chicago, Illinois, at the Weiss-Murray murder inquest. Two rifles and two pistols are lying on the table in front of Juranovich, along with a round bullet clip and bullets. Two men are sitting next to him and writing on pads of paper. Men and women are standing and sitting in the background. Earl Weiss and Patrick Murray, both bootleggers, were killed while walking with attorney W. W. O'Brien, who was wounded. Jacobs, Weiss' bodyguard, and Samuel Peller were wounded as well. Jacobs and Peller were brought in because they were present at the shooting.
