Jun 5, 2018

Sen. Robert F. Kennedy had just accepted his victory in the California presidential primary June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, inspiring a jubilant mood.
Then came quick pops of gunfire, and chaos erupted.
The joyful moments were gone, and now a man seeking presidency was fighting for his life just five years after his brother, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. He died early the next morning.
This is a look back at the night of the shooting, and days and years following, the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in photos.
