wikipedia notes: A famous vigilante action took place in Gunn City on April 23, 1872, that came to be called the "Gunn City Massacre." Outraged by a swindle by certain officials of a company building a rail line to Santa Fe, local citizens reacted by trapping the perpetrators on a train and shooting them dead.
