John Allen Muhammad was an American murderer who, along with Lee Malvo, was responsible for a series of sniper attacks, killing 10 people in and around Washington, D.C., in October 2002. Born in Louisiana, into a lower-middle-class family, John attended the ‘Scotlandville High School.’ At the age of 18, the year he completed his high-school graduation, he joined the ‘Army National Guard ‘of Louisiana. In the mid-1980s, he joined the ‘U.S. Army.’ In 1987, he joined the ‘Nation of Islam’ and changed his surname to “Muhammad.” He was infamous for defying orders and for not reporting on time. He was thus subjected to a few court-martials, too. He worked odd jobs after his discharge from the army. He was married twice in the 1980s: once in 1981 and then in 1988. He had three children from his second wife. When things turned sour in his second marriage, he ran away with his children. The children were eventually located a year later. It was said that John had lost his mental balance. He idolized Osama Bin Laden. In October 2002, he killed 10 people by carrying out sniper attacks, with an accomplice, in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Columbia. Following this, he was sentenced to death and executed in 2009.
