They were arrested on murder and attempted murder charges. The shooting appeared to be in retaliation for a fight last summer between Cannon and Roy Davis, 21, who was fatally shot, Police Capt. Elton Harrington said.

Regarding the killings in Maryland ("Sniper Critically Injures Teenage Boy," Oct. 8): Thanks to National Rifle Assn. lobbying, law enforcement officials are forbidden to use technology that could let them trace bullets used in shootings to the people who bought the guns--even though such technology exists. Just as fingerprints and DNA can be used to identify people who commit crimes, unique markings on bullets and shell casings can be used to trace every bullet recovered from a shooting to the gun that was used.

The man who led police to sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad after spotting his car at a Maryland rest stop said Monday he stayed on the line with 911 dispatchers for nearly three hours, giving them updates as officers moved into position. Whitney Donahue, a refrigeration mechanic from Greencastle, Pa., testified at Muhammad's trial that he saw the blue Chevrolet Caprice on Oct. 24, 2002, and thought he saw two people inside. He said he remained on the line from 12:47 to 3:30 a.m.

Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft, who remained distant from the investigation of the sniper shootings during the rampage, seized control of the prosecution this week, raising questions among some lawyers about whether the politics of the death penalty had trumped the ordinary rules for handling murder cases. On Friday, Montgomery County, Md., prosecutor Douglas F. Gansler filed six counts of murder against John Allen Muhammad, 41, and Lee Boyd Malvo, 17.
