Cobra Collins, a gang leader, demands a 50-50 cut in the return from a bank robbery planned by "Fingers" O'Dell. Connie, in league with Fingers, makes the acquaintance of Cobra to throw him off the trail, but Fingers carries out the robbery and, with Connie, hides in an apartment. They make friends with a 4-year-old child only to learn that his father is a police captain living next door. Cobra discovers the location of their hideout and makes a call just before the police captain arrives; and in an exchange of gunfire, the policeman and both Cobra and Fingers are wounded critically. While Connie calls a doctor, Cobra searches frantically for his share of the money and dies trying to escape. When Connie and Fingers are brought to trial, they are given light sentences for having saved the life of the wounded officer.
