It was even quicker than that !
Leon Frank Czolgosz shot McKinley twice at point blank range on September 6,
1901, as he stood in a reception line at the Pan-American Exposition in
Buffalo, New York. The first bullet deflected off a button and did not
seriously injure the President. The second bullet went through McKinley's
stomach, colon, and kidney, and lodged in the muscle in his back. Doctors
were unable to locate the second bullet. It was felt that the search for the
bullet, using the available 19th century medical technology and techniques
might cause more harm than good. McKinley appeared to be recovering, so the
doctors decided to leave the bullet where it was. McKinley's doctors
believed he would recover, and the President convalesced for more than a
week. Eight days after being shot, McKinley died from gangrene, which had
surrounded his wound, on September 14, 1901. Czolgosz was later found guilty
of murder, and was executed by means of electrocution, on October 29, 1901,
53 days after the crime.

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
