It was 40-years ago today, former U.S. President Ronald Reagan was shot and wounded by a would-be assassin out to impress actress Jody Foster.

Reagan was shot in Washington as he returned to his limousine after speaking at a D.C. hotel.

Reagan was seriously wounded and close to death upon arrival at George Washington University Hospital.  However, he made a full recovery.

Hinckley believed the attack would impress Foster, with whom he’d become obsessed.

Hinkley was found not guilty by reason of insanity and confined to a psychiatric facility.  He was released in 2016.

Reagan died in 2004 at the age of 93.
