On January 18, 1984, two attackers tragically shot twice in the back of Malcolm’s head as he stepped out of the elevator at his office at the University.

According to New York Times, a group calling itself the Islamic Holy War claimed responsibility for the assassination, which opposed American presence in Lebanon.
