JARRATT, Va. | John Allen Muhammad - the mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks that killed 10 people in Virginia, Maryland and the District - was executed by lethal injection Tuesday night in Virginia.

Muhammad was executed at 9 p.m., about nine hours after Gov. Tim Kaine announced that he would not intervene.

Dozens of television crews, photographers and reporters camped outside the Greensville Correctional Center to cover the execution of the man responsible for the deadly three-week sniper rampage.

Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, then 17, terrorized the D.C. area, killing random people outside restaurants and shopping centers, schools, grocery stores and gas stations. The pair is also suspected of a number of other shootings across the country.
