The Beltway Sniper Attack

From October 2, 2002 to October 24, 2002

The Story

The D.C sniper was a series of shootings that occurred throughout Maryland, Virginia and the D.C metropolitan area over a three week period on October 2,2002 up until October 24,2002.There was 10 reported deaths and 3 injured all who were citizens. The FBI, local police and state police all united to help find the suspects as they drove through state lines murdering people.

What I Think

It helped and hurt the situation because the communications between the different branches of government involved wasn't clear enough to the point where they could have caught the suspects early in to prevent the death toll rising.
