WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – John Hinckley, the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, will be released on September 10 according to his legal council.

Hinckley is at the St. Elizabeth Hospital currently.

He will be released on that date because all of the conditions of his recovery leave will have been met.

A court decided to release Hinckley after reviewing evidence from medical professionals and a governmental expert witness.

No additional details about his departure or plans once he is out of the hospital are available at this time.
