This Day in History

On June 5, 1968, Senator Robert Kennedy (D-New York) was shot just after winning the California Democratic presidential primary. He was considered the front runner at the time. He was shot while exiting through the kitchen at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. He died the next day.
