Sirhan Bishara Sirhan (born March 19, 1944 in Jerusalem) was convicted of the June 5, 1968 assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, by shooting him just minutes after Kennedy had won the California presidential primary election.
Sirhan, who was born to Palestinian parents in Jerusalem, fired into the crowd surrounding Kennedy in the Ambassador Hotel after Kennedy finished addressing supporters.
Sirhan was convicted and sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972 after the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional.
