Born in 1920 shot in 1968?
Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, TN on April 4, 1968. Martin Luther King Jr. was born in 1929 and died in 1968. Yes, in April 1968. yes he was. I'm not sure who by but he did get shot. he was shot by someone who didn't agree with him on the civil rights for black and white Americans. the FBI did raise concern to him at the time though.
