Kennedy, along with his wife Jackie and the Governor of Texas, John Connally and his wife were riding in a convertible as part of a ten mile motorcade. About 12:30 three shots rang our from the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository, killing Kennedy and seriously injuring Connally. Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who was three cars behind President Kennedy in the motorcade, was sworn in as the 36th president of the United States at 2:39 p.m. He took the presidential oath of office aboard Air Force One as it sat on the runway at Dallas Love Field airport. The swearing in was witnessed by some 30 people, including Jacqueline Kennedy, who was still wearing clothes stained with her husband’s blood.
