John Allan Muhammad, the so-called D.C. sniper, is scheduled to be executed tonight for the murder of Dean Meyers. The gas station in Mannassas where it happened still draws attention.
The station's owner Malik Joseph, says the curiosity about what happened here 7-years ago is still high. "A lot of people ask us the question about which pump is it, and we tell them it was pump number 4," says Joseph.
That's where Dean Meyers was shot and killed on the night of October 9th 2002. Maggie fills up here. She was just 8-years old back then, but her memory of the sniper shooting is clear. "I just remember we couldn't go trick or treating that year; we didn't have recess," says Maggie. "It was an intense time for everyone back then, it was really scary."
The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a last minute appeal to stop the execution now scheduled for 9 p.m. tonight.
