LOS ANGELES (AP) - Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot in the head
scene of terror. He was rushed to Central Receiving Hospital where a
spokesman reported his condition was critical.
Witnesses said Kennedy was conscious and spoke a few words as he was
taken by an ambulance. An Associated Press reporter saw blood rushing
from Kennedy's head.
The New York senator had just finished thanking his supporters for their
help in winning California's presidential preference primary election.
Police captured a man believed to be the assailant. He was about 25,
curley hair and olive skinned. They hustled him out through the lobby of
the Ambassador Hotel, a shotgun at his back..........................................
I remember hearing the news of Robert Kennedy's death on a hot summer
morning on the way to Pine Springs Resort, a 1960's Nashville swimming
hole. I was just a kid, my mother was giving myself and a childhood friend
a ride to Pine Springs. The news was that Robert F. Kennedy had been
shot. I remember it being sad, that another Kennedy had been assassinated.
