The man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981 was spotted getting one of his first tastes of freedom at a Subway in Virginia.

John Hinckley, Jr., who was confined to a psychiatric institution in Washington, D.C. after shooting Reagan and gravely wounding his press secretary, James Brady, was released into the care of his mother only a few weeks ago.

DailyMail.com posted a photo of Hinckley on its website, showing the attempted assassin carrying a sandwich and a soda out of the sub chain’s Williamsburg, Va., location.

Hinckley, now 61, said he tried to kill Reagan outside the Washington Hilton Hotel to impress actress Jodie Foster.

In late July, a federal judge ordered he be released from St. Elizabeth’s Psychiatric Hospital, where he had been confined after being found not guilty by reason of insanity in 1981.
