DC Terror background
In the fall of 2002, America was still reeling from the terror attacks of 9/11.
Washington D.C. was a prime target for terrorism, with 9/11’s attack on the Pentagon as well as a series of Anthrax attacks that left the area in a state of anxiety.
Then, in October 2002, terror struck again as someone shot and killed a man who was leaving a grocery store.
The next day, five more people were shot and killed nearby. One person was shot while pumping gas, and another was killed while mowing their lawn. There was no relation between the victims.
These attacks were utterly random and sadistic in nature.
About Tony Harris
Emmy-award winning host and journalist (CNN, Al Jazeera) Tony Harris was a TV news anchor in Baltimore at the time of the sniper attacks.
He takes us through the D.C. Sniper’s three-week-long killing spree to its aftermath today. In analytical documentarian style, Harris speaks with law enforcement officers, journalists, and witnesses who survived the ordeal, chronicling their stories during that time.
According to producers via a press statement:
“When this nightmare finally ended, the identity of the Sniper shocked nearly everyone. The story revealed, which is considerably more complicated than expected, was one of betrayal, neglect and family. Now, the Supreme Court is hearing the case. And the results will almost certainly have far reaching consequences.
