Bonnie and Clyde bed and breakfast

Neighbors aren't welcoming a minister's plans to convert a garage apartment that was the site of an infamous Bonnie and Clyde shootout into a bed-and-breakfast.

"When I think of a bed-and-breakfast, I think of charm, antiques and history - not murder," says Peggy Webb, who is among the opponents.

In his application for a special-use permit, the Rev. Phillip McClendon said he wants to buy the property from its current owner.

The 1933 shootout happened in the middle of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's bank-robbing spree across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana and New Mexico. Authorities in Louisiana ambushed and killed Bonnie and Clyde in May 1934.
