US-Diplomat Leamon Ray Hunt is assassinated the Red Brigades at the age of 57 in Rome, Lazio, Italy.

As he was waiting for his gated home to open three gunmen emerged from a Fiat 128 across the street and opened fire on Hunt's Alfa Romeo armoured limousine with automatic weapons. While none of the rounds fired at the limousine penetrated, one gunman jumped on the trunk and fired into the upper edge of the rear window. One of the 7.65mm rounds broke through the rubber and metal window frame and struck Hunt in the skull.
