1964: R&B and soul singer Sam Cooke, whose hits included "Cupid," "You Send Me" and "Twistin' the Night Away," is fatally shot by the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles. He was 33 years old. Motel manager Bertha Franklin told police that she shot Cooke in self-defense after he broke into her office residence and attacked her. A coroner's inquest would later return a verdict of justifiable homicide.
