John Hinckley Jr., Who Shot Ronald Reagan, Freed From Mental Hospital

MIKE EVENS/AFP/Getty ImagesThis photo taken by presidential photographer Mike Evens on March 30, 1981 shows police and Secret Service agents reacting during the assassination attempt on then USA president Ronald Reagan, after a conference outside the Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. Reagan was hit by one of six shots fired by John Hinckley, who also seriously injured press secretary James Brady (just behind the car).

A federal judge in July ordered Hinckley's release from St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, finding that he no longer posed a danger to himself or to others.

Some in Kingsmill, the gated Williamsburg community Hinckley will call home, said forgiveness is beside the point. He is not allowed to use social media like Facebook or Twitter without the permission of his entire psychiatric team.

Judge Paul L. Friedman reportedly wrote in his July 27 ruling that Hinckley was a "profoundly troubled 25-year-old young man" when he attempted to kill Reagan to impress Foster.

Information for this article was contributed by Jessica Gresko of The Associated Press and by Shawn Boburg and Moriah Balingit of The Washington Post.

Reagan's family have said they are strongly opposed to Hinckley's release - and past year, his daughter Patti wrote: "I hope the doctors are right when they say that John Hinckley isn't a danger to anyone, but something in me feels they are wrong".

The jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity and he was committed to St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C. Brady died in 2014 from his injuries; the others recovered.

The assassination attempt wounded President Reagan, Press Secretary James Brady, U.S. Secret Service agent Tim McCarthy, and D.C. police officer Thomas Delahanty.

Until Saturday, Hinckley was spending 17 days each month at his mother's home.

ABC News footage captured the shocking moment Reagan was shot as he waved to the crowd - just weeks after he became president. He has gone bowling, attended lectures and concerts, and volunteered at a nearby church, where he was offered a job this summer, according to court records. "If those people who have concerns were fully informed, they'd have nothing to worry about", he said.
