Seven years and seventeen days since he was captured at a rest stop in Maryland, John Allen Muhammed is dead:
Jarratt, Virginia (CNN) — — Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad was executed Tuesday by lethal injection, a Virginia prisons spokesman said.
He was declared dead at 9:11 p.m., said Larry Traylor, director of communications for the Virginia Department of Corrections.
“There were no complications; Mr. Mohammad was asked if he wished to make a last statement,” he told reporters. “He did not acknowledge this or make a last statement whatsoever.”
Mohammad, 48, said nothing from the time he entered the death chamber accompanied by guards, Traylor said.
And that is that.
