It seems police in Maryland have caught the two men they were looking for, Muhammad and Malvo. (This is a good thing, if only because it has caused CNN to remove Muhammad’s face and license-plate number from its screen, where they had seemingly become permanent parts of the CNN logo earlier tonight.) Apparently they were sleeping in their car at a rest area in Maryland. It just goes to show, you shouldn’t doze off when the national news media might be announcing that you’re wanted in connection with a major crime spree!
It remains to be seen, of course, whether these guys are the snipers, or are connected in any way with the sniper(s). A key question, it seems to me, is whether there will be another shooting soon — like, today — now that these guys in custody. I would think that, if the sniper is someone else, he might kill someone right away to prove that police don’t have him yet. God knows he likes attention, and wouldn’t want some random Gulf War veteran stealing his spotlight.
