The D.C. sniper attacks (also known as the Beltway sniper attacks) were
a series of coordinated shootings that occurred during three weeks in
October 2002 in
Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Ten
people were killed and three others were critically wounded in the
Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area and along Interstate 95
in Virginia.

The snipers were John Allen Muhammad (aged 41 at the time) and Lee
Boyd Malvo
(aged 17 at the time), who traveled in a blue 1990 Chevrolet
Caprice
sedan. Their crime spree, begun in February 2002, included
murders and robberies in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Washington, which resulted in seven
deaths and seven wounded people; in ten months, the snipers killed
17 people and wounded 10 others.

In September 2003, Muhammad was sentenced to death, and in October,
the juvenile, Malvo, was sentenced to six consecutive
life sentences
without parole
. In November 2009, Muhammad was put to death by
lethal injection.

(FoxNews) –
Bill Macy, the actor who made an indelible imprint on 1970s
sitcoms with his portrayal on Norman Lear "
Maude" of the loving if always
up-for-an-argument Walter Findlay, died last night in Los Angeles.

Macy’s death was announced by his producer and manager Matt Beckoff,
writing on
Facebook “My buddy Bill Macy passed away at 7:13pm tonight. He
was a spitfire right up to the end. My condolences to his beautiful wife
Samantha Harper Macy.”

Macy costarred in the 1972-78 All in the Family spin-off series opposite Bea
Arthur, who played the outspoken liberal Maude Findlay, a cousin of Family‘s
Edith Bunker.
