10 years ago, beltway sniper attacks began

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday marks ten years since the beginning of the sniper attacks that terrorized the D.C. area.

Ten people were killed and three others hurt during the shooting spree that lasted three weeks in October 2002 that took place in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were eventually captured and convicted of the killings. 

Muhammad was sentenced to death and was executed in November 2009.

Malvo was sentenced to six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole and is serving them in a Virginia prison.

He is now 27-years old and in a recent interview with Washington Post local reporter Josh White called himself a ‘monster.'

During the interview he seemed to take responsibility for his actions and recognized the enormity of his brief reign of terror.

Josh White joined us to talk about his encounters with Malvo.
