@dill1971: After President-elect Franklin Roosevelt finished making a speech, on February 15, 1933, in Miami, Guiseppe Zangara fired six shots in rapid secession from a pistol. He didn’t hit President-elect Roosevelt, because he often made his speeches from the rear of his car, due to his disability.
Zangara did hit five people. The Mayor of Chicago, Anton Cermak , was severely wounded when the bullet went into his stomach. On March 6, 1933, Mayor Cermak died from his injuries.
Zangara was born in Italy, but became a US citizen in 1933. He harbored a hatred for wealthy capitalists. He was convicted on charges of assault with the intent to kill and sentence to 80 years. When Mayor Cermak died three weeks later, he was retried and sentence to death by the electric chair. On March 5, 1933, he was electrocuted at a state prison in Railford.
