A former NBC News reporter who covered the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy for the network in 1968 has died in Maryland. Charles Quinn was 82.

His daughter, Diana Quinn, says he died Sunday of heart failure at his home in Cambridge, in Maryland's Eastern Shore region.

Charles Quinn was a former newspaper reporter. He joined NBC in 1962 and covered the civil rights movement and politics. He was reporting on Kennedy's presidential campaign and was at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles when the senator was shot.

Quinn later served as a Pentagon correspondent for NBC and worked for 10 years at the American Petroleum Institute before retiring in 1991.
