Mother of Martin Luther King Alberta Williams King is shot dead by deranged gunman Marcus Chenault at the age of 70 in Ebenezer Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

Chenault shot King with two pistols as she sat at the organ of the Ebenezer Baptist Church. Chenault stated that he shot King because "all Christians are my enemies" and claimed that he had decided that black ministers were a menace to black people.
