dc July 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a recent interview which is scheduled to air on Thursday on a cable TV special, William Shatner was told by Lee Boyd Malvo, who was convicted of the shooting spree in Washington DC in 2002, that he (Malvo) and his partner attempted to recruit other snipers for their crimes, and that one man was killed by his accomplice because he backed out.

Malvo told Shatner by telephone interview from a southwest Virginia prison that two men had planned to help with the sniper attacks, but one of them reneged on the deal, and Malvo’s accomplice, John Allen Muhammad killed one of the two men. These two would-be shooters were not identified by Malvo during the interview.

Malvo, who was 17 at the time of the shootings stated, “There was supposed to be three to four snipers with silenced weapons. In this way we could do a lot more damage along the entire Eastern Seaboard.”

The one hour show called, “Confessions of the DC Sniper with William Shatner: An Aftermath Special” will air on Thursday at 10 pm on A&E.
