The Bobby Kennedy assassination tape: Were 13 shots fired or only 8?

No other recording of the moment of the shooting had ever been discovered. No cameras were rolling as Kennedy shook hands with bus boys in the pantry, followed by gunfire described by many witnesses as two shots, a pause, and then a rapid-fire sequence of shots. Johnson turned the tape over to audio engineer Philip Van Praag. Using modern technology to limit ambient noise and slow down the tape, Van Praag counted 13 shot “impulses,” or wave forms resembling gunshots, and possibly more drowned out by screams.

It was the first new discovery in the RFK case in years. If true, it was monumental – Sirhan Sirhan’s .22-caliber Iver Johnson Cadet revolver held eight shots.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a side note, back when I was just starting out on Hollywood, I had a lawyer (who didn't) whose receptionist was married to an LAPD officer who was in the pantry in the immediate aftermath of the assassination, and according to her he counted more than 8 bullet holes.

Shot behind the ear(Sirhan in front)....

Ethan Allen and...

By either a security guard(hired assassin) or by an agent on loan from the Shah's SAVAK using a camera with a 4 shot .22 inside fired by aiming the camera and clicking. RFK died rather slowly denoting low power even for a .22.
