Episode Summary

Assassination of Robert Kennedy
Months before the 1968 presidential election and five years after the country was rocked by the assassination of his brother, Robert F. Kennedy was fatally wounded while campaigning in Los Angeles. Sirhan B. Sirhan, a Palestinian national, took responsibility for the shooting, citing Kennedy's support for Israel during the Six Day War. ABC News brings you back to June 5, 1968, with the first pictures of the shooting and an interview with a bullet-riddled bystander.moreless
