Scenes of the Fall 2002 Sniper Attacks

Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad will be executed Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET. (Update: Virginia executed Muhammad at 9:06 p.m. Tuesday.) In the fall of 2002, Muhammad and his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, killed 10 people and wounded three others in a series of attacks in the D.C. metropolitan area. Sean Hemmerle of Contact Press Images photographed each crime scene from two points of view: the snipers’ vantage point (on the left) and the place where the victim fell (on the right).
