What do you remember about the days when John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were on the loose?
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Today, Oct. 2, is the 10-year anniversary of what became known as the DC sniper case—a horrific chapter in local history that began in Montgomery County and riveted the nation. Only one of the attacks was in Prince George's County— outside of Benjamin Tasker Middle School in Bowie. A 13-year-old Iran Brown was shot around 8:09 a.m. as he arrived to school.

The cold calculation of the crime was unthinkable at the time. The perpetrators, John Allen …
