John Lennon was assassinated
on December 8, 1980, as he returned to his
New York apartment from a recording session



John Lennon Assassination Broadcast

At 10:49pm the Lennon's limousine pulles up outside the Dakota and Jose Perdomo the doorman leaves his post to open the car doors for them. Yoko gets out first. She is followed closely by her husband, who is carrying a tape recorder and some cassettes. As Yoko passes him the killer says "Hello". Lennon gives the guy a long, hard look. As John passes him, the man steps back and pulles a snubnosed .38 revolver from his pocket. He drops into combat stance, with knees flexed, arms outstreched and one arm supporting the other at the wrist and says:

Mr. Lennon?

As John turnes, the guy fires two shots into him. They catch him in the back, spinning him round. Blood already starts spurting from Lennon's wounds as the assassin takes aim again. He fires three more shots. Two bullet smashes into John's shoulder, the other goes astray. There's a crash of shattering glass as the slugs, that had passed through John's body smash into the Dakota's glass frontage. Mortally wounded John staggers up the steps into the Dakota's front lobby, his face horribly conturted.

I'm shot, I'm shot he moans as he fells to the floor. John's been shot screams Yoko, who follows her husband into the hotel.Jay Hastings the security man reaches under his desk and presses the alarm button, which summones the police from the nearby 20th Precinct Station. After this, he rushes to John's side and removes his shattered glasses. Then he takes off his uniform to cover the victim.He wants to use his tie as a tourniquet, but can not decide where to apply it. John is dying, blood pours from his chest and mouth, his eyes are open but unfocused, he is gurgling and vomiting blood.

CBS News: Former Beatle John Lennon Shot And Killed
by John Bohannon and Stephanie Shelton


ALERT - SHOTS FIRED - 1 WEST 72nd STREET

is the terse dispatch that summones New York Police Officer Tony Palma and his partner Herb Frauenberger to the scene of the crime. From the sidewalk Palma sees Hastings and shouts up anxiously: "Is someone shot in there?" He runs up the steps with Frauenberger. In Hasting's office they find a man lying face down with a small woman standing over him crying. Palma turns the body over. He sees that the victim is badly injured and tells his partner: "Grab his legs and let's get him out of here!" As they lift him, Hastings hears as John's bones crack. By the time they lay him in the back of a squad car, John loses all control over his limbs. As the car takes off, the driver Officer James Moran yells at John: "Do you know who you are?". Lennon is unable to speak, but nods. The car jumps the red lights on Colombus Avenue, speeds down to 58th Street and swings into the entrance of Roosevelt Hospital.

The hospital's major trauma team is already alerted. The rapidly fading John is carried to the emergency room. He has virtually no pulse. The two bullets which had hit him on the back had both pierced a lung and passed through his chest. A third bullet had shattered his left shoulder bone, and a fourth had hit the same shoulder and ricocheted inside his chest, where it severed his aorta and windpipe. After an unsuccessful attempt at cardiac massage, a medical team of seven people laboures to save John using every device and technique available. Nothing works. The official cause of death is shock produced by massive haemorrhaging ... he lost 80% of his blood.

Another John Lennon Biography


John Lennon Message Board
Post | Read

For me, John is still alive. I believe he's still with us,
looking over Yoko, Sean and Julian. If you are reading this John, remember that I will never loose faith in you,
and say hi to George for us. Even though I'm only 13,
you're forever going to be my hero,
because of giving your life for Love and Peace.

I'm a great fan of The Beatles, and I beleive that they were
the best rock & roll group in music history. Not many people
my age understand me well. They don't understand why I like
The Beatles and why John Lennon is forever going to be my hero.
They don't understand why a 13 year old girl would be into
The Beatles, John Lennon and George Harrison. All I've got to say about this Message Board, is that it helped me in a sort of way,
tell the whole world how I fell about a man, who for no reasons, died.

Remember, War Is Over If You Want It.

Jo, a 13 year old girl from Canada

To me, John is a spirit who lives with me each day,
and he holds my hand and teaches me how to live in peace and
be a better person. He guides me to love nature, the environment, myself and my fellow human being. Through his brilliant mind,
I've learned what kind of person I want to be,
and to me he is the true meaning of an artist. He will never
fade as being my all-time favorite song writer and musician.

Just Imagine
In the 60s, Yoko Ono married John Lennon
and campaigned for peace in Vietnam.
More than 30 years on,
she's still irrevocably linked to her dead husband
and America is once again at war.
Here, she talks to Andrew Smith about marriage,
art and inner peace

Imagine

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try,
No hell below us, above us only sky,
Imagine all the people, living for today.
Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too,
Imagine all the people, living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one,
I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people, sharing all the world.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one,
I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.
