The frenzied aftermath of President Reagan's assassination attempt, March 30, 1981.

As I emerged from the Washington Hilton following President Reagan's speech, I heard shots being fired at the motorcade. In the time it took me to get to the side of the limo, Reagan had already been shoved into the car, which immediately sped away. Although I had three cameras with me, two of them had been loaded with tungsten film to cover the speech. I always kept one body loaded with daylight color film just in case something happened. The next moments were a blur of activity. However, knowing I had to time to change film, I proceeded to try to calm myself, and squeeze off each frame.
