Jarratt, Virginia (CNN) -- Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad was executed Tuesday by lethal injection, a Virginia prisons spokesman said.


He was declared dead at 9:11 p.m., said Larry Traylor, director of communications for the Virginia Department of Corrections.


"There were no complications; Mr. Mohammad was asked if he wished to make a last statement," he told reporters. "He did not acknowledge this or make a last statement whatsoever."


Mohammad, 48, said nothing from the time he entered the death chamber accompanied by guards, Traylor said.


Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine denied a last-minute clemency request Tuesday for Muhammad, the mastermind behind the Washington-area sniper attacks of

2002 that terrorized the nation's capital.


During three weeks in October 2002, Muhammad and accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo, then 17, killed 10 people and wounded three, while taunting police with written messages and phoned-in threats and demands.


"Having carefully reviewed the petition for clemency and judicial opinions regarding this case, I find no compelling reason to set aside the sentence that was recommended by the jury and then imposed and affirmed by the courts," Kaine said in a written statement.


"Accordingly, I decline to intervene."

I just got the information on my iPhone thanks to CNN updates, the D.C area sniper from 2002 was executed today by lethal injection. I thought there would be more publicity for his trial and sentence to be honest. I was starting my freshman year of high school in Maryland when he and his accomplice started to snipe victims in Baltimore and D.C.

Kinda strange they kept this hush-hush until now. But man, that's kinda history for me.

Why did they do it so fast? I would have asked him a ton of questions of why he did it and what went through his mind.

Even though it's been years since it happend, he rarely gave exact "hints" as to why he went along with the killings. I know they made a Lifetime movie about the two snipers, not gonna lie it was scary and accurate, even for Lifetime.

I wonder what's gonna happen to the boy, he was 17 when this all happened, just makes me think what his fate will be now that the story has risen up again.

He killed the victims because he wanted to kill his ex wife and she was suppose to be one of the targets too so he was trying to make it look like a random shooting if she was shot and killed.
