48 years ago today, gunfire in Dallas, Texas, killed President John F. Kennedy.

In 1963, a gunman assassinated President Kennedy while he was riding in a presidential motorcade.

A bullet also seriously wounded Texas Governor John Connally, who was also in the convertible.

First Lady Jackie Kennedy and Governor Connally's wife were not hit.

Kennedy, who was 46, was pronounced dead 30 minutes later. Within hours, police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald for the murder.
