On December 11, 1964, Sam Cooke ran up to the manager's office at this motel, clad only in a shoe and a sports jacket.
Although the circumstances leading up to and after that encounter are still debated, the results were the same: Sam Cooke was fatally shot in the torso. He was 33 years old.
Reportedly, his last words were, "Lady, You Shot Me."
