Suspicion naturally fell on the Nation of Islam, which disparaged and denounced Malcolm X after he left their group the previous year. Two members of the Nation of Islam were charged and convicted in the killing, though they professed their innocence of the crime. Three gunmen shot and kiiled Malcolm X during a speech at the Audubon Ballroom, in Harlem, New York City, on February 21, 1965. Three suspects were later convicted and served lengthy prison terms. All three men changed their names. One became the head of the Harlem mosque (Nation of Islam), another left the group and became a Sunni as Malcolm X had.
