Which U.S. Vice President killed a man while in office?

Answer:

AARON BURR

Aaron Burr was the third Vice President of the United States under President Thomas Jefferson. On this day in 1804, Alexander Hamilton was shot and mortally wounded by Vice President Aaron Burr in one of the most famous duels in American history. Burr was never tried for the illegal duel and all charges against him were eventually dropped. The death of Hamilton, however, ended Burr's political career. President Jefferson dropped him from the ticket for the 1804 presidential election, and he never held office again.
