John Hinckley Jr. says no shows planned, apologizes for shooting Reagan
canceled performances in Brooklyn, Chicago and Connecticut won’t be rescheduled for the “foreseeable future.”“I don’t know anybody else who’s certainly had a life like I’ve had,” Hinckley said on “CBS Mornings.” “I mean, what I tell people now, if you want to get to know John Hinckley, listen to his songs.”The 67-year-old has expressed an ambition to be a singer/songwriter and to perform on tour, but his scheduled performances were canceled due to safety concerns. During his first television interview since his unconditional release earlier this month, Hinckley told CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett that he has “true remorse” for the assassination attempt 41 years ago.He publicly apologized to the families of his shooting victims, and to Jodie Foster “for bringing her into this.”“I know [the victims] probably can’t forgive me now, but I just want them to know that I am sorry for what I did,” Hinckley said.”On March 30, 1981, then-25-year-old Hinckley brought a .22 caliber revolver to the Washington Hilton and carried out the shooting as President Reagan walked to this limousine. He fired six shots, and struck Reagan in the chest. Press secretary James Brady was paralyzed and died from his injuries decades later.
Washington officially the State of Washington, is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Named for George Washington, the first U.S. president, the state was made out of the western part of the Washington Territory, which was ceded by the British Empire in 1846, in accordance with the Oregon Treaty in the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute. The state, which is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. Olympia is the state capital; the state's largest city is Seattle. Washington is often referred to as Washington State to distinguish it from the nation's capital, Washington, D.C..
