Vincent "The Schemer" Drucci (1898 - April 4, 1927), born Victor D'Ambrosio, mafia figure from Chicago prohibition era. Member of the North Side gang of Chicago and associate of Bugs Moran, Earl 'Hymie' Weiss, and Dion O'Banion. Drucci was involved with the attempted murders of both Al Capone and Johnny Torrio in the turf wars of the 1920's. Drucci was shot in an altercation with a Chicago policeman in 1927. He has the ignoble distinction of being one of the few gangsters to be killed by law enforcement.
