Former White House Press Secretary, James Brady, survived a gunshot wound to the head in 1981. Over the years, the gun control advocate, had multiple surgeries and, according to his family, never regained full control over his limbs.
Nancy Bull, district administrator for the Virginia medical examiner's office, has ruled Brady's death a homicide, 35 years after the shooting.
It was earlier reported that Brady died of  “a series of health issues.” It is now believed most of those issues must have been attributed to the gunshot wound suffered in that assassination attempt.
John Hinckley Jr., the lone gunman who fired the shots that wounded Reagan, Brady, a police officer and a Secret Service agent outside a Washington hotel, was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
Hinckley Jr., now 59, currently resides at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington. 
It is unclear whether Hinckley Jr. will face any new charges.
