On March 30, 1981, John Hinckley Jr. shot six bullets in an attempt to assassinate President Ronald Reagan. Of six shots fired, Reagan was hit, as well as Press Secretary James Brady, D.C. Police Officer Thomas Delahanty and Secret Service agent Timothy McCarthy. In 1982, Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
