DC sniper executed for 2002 killing spree.

WASHINGTON, Nov 11 (KUNA) -- DC Sniper John Allen Mohammad, mastermind of

the 2002 rampage that killed 10 people in the Washington region, was executed

Tuesday night. Mohammad, dubbed the "DC Sniper," died by lethal injection Tuesday night

while being held at the Greensville Correctional Center in Virginia, prison

officials said. During the three-week killing spree, Mohammed and his teenage accomplice,

Lee Boyd Malvo, shot and killed Dean Harold Meyers at a Virginia gas station.

Charged with capitol murder for Meyers death, Mohammed received the death

penalty, while Malvo was sentenced to life in prison. The execution came after the United State Supreme Court on Monday turned

down Mohammad's final appeal, and Virginia Governor Tim Kaine denied clemency
