On June 5, 1968, United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los
Angeles, California. Kennedy had just won the California primary election for the Democratic nomination for President earlier
that night. While Kennedy was passing through the hotel's kitchen, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, a 24-year old Palestinian immigrant,
shot and killed the presidential hopeful. Sirhan subsequently confessed to the crime, was convicted of first-degree murder
on April 17, 1969, and is currently serving a life sentence for Kennedy's assassination.
