TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Downtown Tucson was taken over by gunslingers and gangsters this weekend in the annual Dillinger Days.

It has been 82 years since Tucson police captured and arrested John Dillinger, the most wanted outlaw of his time.

History buffs filled Hotel Congress to watch the reenactment of Tucson's role in capturing one of America's most notorious criminals.

There were reenactments of the capture, historical lectures and live music.
