A Thompson submachine gun and a shotgun left behind when Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow fled Joplin in a shootout with the law in 1933 brought $210,000 at auction Saturday.

The .45-caliber Tommy gun fetched $130,000. The 12-gauge 1897 model Winchester shotgun brought $80,000.

Both were purchased by an online bidder who lives on the East Coast. Mayo Auction, of Kansas City, was not given permission to release the name of the buyer.
