WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - Ten years ago today, five people were murdered in quick succession by the DC snipers -- and our entire region was to endure nearly a month of terror.
At the time, we had no idea who was shooting people at random --- or why.
Scott Broom reports on a rare glimpse of the archives in the case.
An evidence room like no other in Prince George's County -- where the evidence is being preserved for a future exhibit honoring the victims and the law enforcement officers who eventually caught the snipers and put an end to the terror.
All the evidence from the case has recently been handed over to archivists for a future law enforcement memorial museum at Judiciary Square in Washington. And there is so much material that archivists are still working to get an accurate count.
