Martin Luther King Jr. Death's Shot (USA)
While standing on the balcony, on 4 April 1968, he joked with friends and collegues while he waited for his jacket. At 6:01 a shot rang out, hitting King in the side of the face. Friends rushed to side and desperatly tried to stop the bleeding. Police soon appeared on the scene guns drawn asking where the shot came from. Those on the balcony pointed in the direction of an old run down hotel across the street. That moment was captured by photographer, James Louw, and now lives infamy as King's death shot.
