Capturing the DC Sniper

In October 2002 the DC area was on lockdown. A series of sniper shootings and subsequent murders kept the general public living in fear due to the intense and seemingly random nature of these acts of violence. In total, 10 people were killed and 3 others were injured within a three-week period. Join the key FBI agents who solved this case in an intimate conversation about how they helped capture the DC Sniper. The conversation will be moderated by Fox 5 investigative reporter Paul Wagner.
