Sniper Horror Grips D.C. Metro Area
Ten dead. Three wounded. Unlucky number 13 marked the tally of people shot by a mysterious killer dubbed the “D.C. Sniper” by headline writers and TV producers. It all took place in a three-week period just over seven years ago: a trail of blood leading police into multiple counties and states. With John Allen Muhammad’s execution by lethal injection Tuesday night, many are reminded of the events that led to his punishment and to a nation’s sigh of relief.
