As Lee Oswald is led out into the basement of Dallas Police HQ, a man wearing a suit & hat steps out from the crowd of reporters standing to his left. 

The man rushes toward Oswald with a pistol in his right hand & fires one shot into his abdomen at point blank range.

Lee Oswald cries out in agony: "Ohhhhhhhhhhh......" & falls to the floor still handcuffed.

The man in the suit & hat is subdued by police & Oswald is carried back inside the police station.

The man taken into custody is known by many of the officers.  His name is Jack Ruby.

Ruby runs a local strip club known as "The Carousel".  

He originally came from Chicago & once worked for Al Capone.

Lee Harvey Oswald is placed on a stretcher, put into the back of an ambulance & rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital.  He arrives in critical condition.

The alleged assassin of President Kennedy is pronounced dead at 1:07 p.m. (CST).
