SNIPER GUILTY

MSNBC BREAKING NEWS: Muhammad found guilty of murder

A jury on Monday found John Allen Muhammad guilty of murder in the first sniper case to go to trial, concluding he used a rifle, a beat-up car and a teenager who idolized him to kill randomly and terrorize the Washington area during last year’s sniper spree. The verdict means Muhammad could face the death penalty. Ten people were killed in the attacks–many of them shot as they went about their daily tasks.
