Details: This is an archival photo that shows Lee Harvey Oswald just after being shot by Jack Ruby. The photographer Bob Jackson won the Pulitzer Prize for News Photography in 1964 for capturing this image.
Jack Leon Rubenstein (March 25, 1911 – January 3, 1967), who legally changed his name to Jack Leon Ruby in 1947, was an American nightclub operator in Dallas, Texas. Ruby was originally from Chicago, Illinois. He was convicted of the November 24, 1963 murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. The murder took place two days after Oswald was arrested by deputy Bill Vaught for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Ruby appealed the conviction and death sentence. As a date for his new trial was being set, he became ill and died of lung cancer on January 3, 1967.
