1963: In Dallas, Texas, U.S. President John F. Kennedy is assassinated and Texas Gov. John B. Connally is seriously wounded when a sniper fires shots from the Texas School Book Depository at the president's motorcade. Suspect Lee Harvey Oswald was later captured and charged with the murder of both Kennedy and police officer J. D. Tippit, whom he shot while fleeing the scene. Oswald would be fatally shot two days later by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby while in police custody.
