    Reagan shot in 1981

    BBC ON THIS DAY | 30 | 1981: President Reagan is shot

    President Ronald Reagan has been shot and wounded after a lone gunman opened fire in Washington.

    He is currently undergoing emergency surgery at George Washington University Hospital but there are unconfirmed reports he walked in unaided.

    Initial reports claim he may have a punctured lung.

    Five to six shots were fired as he left the Washington Hilton Hotel where he had been addressing a union convention, about one mile from the White House.

    A man, firing at close range, also wounded White House Press Secretary James Brady in the head.

    A Secret Service official and a Washington policeman were also injured before the gunman was pushed to the ground by police.
