▶️ Man who shot Reagan released from court supervision after 41 years


NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — John Hinckley Jr. has been freed from court oversight. The action ends decades of supervision by legal and mental health professionals.

Hinckley shot and wounded President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

The lifting of all restrictions had been expected since late September.

U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman in Washington said he’d free Hinckley on Wednesday if he continued to remain mentally stable in the community in Virginia where he has lived since 2016.
