“From the Morning of Sunday November 24th 1963 NBC News LIVE coverage of the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald by Dallas night club owner Jack Ruby. This video begins at 11:21 A.M C.S.T. The very minute he was shot reported by Tom Petitt.”
From JFK News
“Assassination of John F. Kennedy, mortal shooting of John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, as he rode in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. His accused killer was Lee Harvey Oswald, a former U.S. Marine who had embraced Marxism and defected for a time to the Soviet Union. Oswald never stood trial for murder, because, while being transferred after having been taken into custody, he was shot and killed by Jack Ruby, a distraught Dallas nightclub owner.”

More like NBC News live coverage of the Ruby-Oswald shooting or what would be called today, raw news coverage. NBC News trying to cover a somewhat disorganized chaotic scene back in 1963. As the reporter said, just another chapter in story that doesn’t seem real.
First a President of the United States being assassinated in a car with Secret Service all around him. Then the man who assassinates the President being killed himself by a local nightclub owner/mobster Jack Ruby. Which just created a bunch of new questions after speculation had already begun about whether or not Lee Oswald was alone with his murderous plot, or did he have help.
I believe Oswald had help, but we still don’t know that and two of those reasons why I believe, are because both Lee Oswald and Jack Ruby died before we could find those things out.
