Reagan aide James Brady's death 'a homicide'

The death of Ronald Reagan's aide James Brady has been ruled a homicide, 33 years after he was wounded in an assassination attempt on the then US president, police in Washington DC say.

The former press secretary was shot in the 1981 attempt on Reagan's life by John Hinckley Jr.

He suffered brain damage and partial paralysis and died this week at 73.
