Who shot John Fitzgerald Kennedy At the time of 1230pm on the 22nd of November 1963 the 35th President of the United States of America John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated as he drove through the streets of Dallas Texas Every year millions pay homage in Washington and wonder who really killed John Kennedy Many deem it to be a massive government conspiracy and the greatest murder mystery of all time Incredibly despite many eyewitnesses and numerous films theres much doubt still about where exactly Kennedy and Connaly were hit when in the sequence of events were the men shot and what weapons were used But mainly who killed John F Kennedy President Kennedys visit to Texas in November 1963 had been under consideration for almost a year before it occurred He had made only a few brief visits to the State since the 1960 presidential campaign and in 1962 he began to consider a visit During 1963 the reasons for making the trip were to gain support in Texas as he was not popular here A visit to Dallas would strengthen his vote Moreover he looked forward to the public appearances which he personally enjoyed When the motorcade arrived in Dealey Plaza at 1229 pm it turned right from Main to Houston Street and just seconds later it took the 120-degree turn onto Elm Street passing the Schoolbook Depository Building Just as the limousine passed the Stemmons Freeway sign people heard a kind of gunshot noise then looking at the President saw him taking his hand to his throat covering a bullet wound The next second Governor Connally felt an ache in his back which he recognised as a shot Just seconds later he heard the third shot Mrs Kennedy who then believed she was hearing firecrackers from the motorcade heard terrible noises and turned to Kennedy She saw her husband being shot in the head this was the final fatal blow
