Fifty years ago on June 5, 42-year-old presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was mortally wounded shortly after midnight at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. He had just won the California presidential primary in the 1968 election. He was pronounced dead at 1:44 a.m. on June 6 about 26 hours after he had been shot.
