He killed Private William Long and wounded Private Quinton Ezeagwula. After his arrest, Muhammad acknowledged shooting the men. He told police that he had intended to kill as many Army personnel as possible. He had an SKS rifle, a Mossberg International 702 rifle, two handguns, 562 rounds of ammunition, and military books in his car. Muhammad was charged with capital murder, attempted capital murder, and 10 counts of unlawful discharge of a weapon. Muhammad also reportedly faced 15 counts of engaging in a terrorist act.[1]A convert to Islam, Muhammad had gone to Yemen in 2007 to teach English, staying about 16 months. He was deported from Yemen to the United States, after having overstayed his visa and been detained. In January 2010, Muhammad wrote to the judge in his case. He claimed that he was sent on the attacks by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and pleaded guilty to the charges of capital murder.[2] He had not consulted with his lawyers, and no independent confirmation of his claim has been made.[2] His father described him as "unable to process reality".

June 10, 2009 53-year-old white woman Leslie Jo Peltier brought black teens Daquan Breland, 19, and Jaquan Breland, 19 and another teen from Brooklyn to Auburn New York to settle a dispute involving her son. They jumped out of the car and fired at a random crowd with shooting at a group of people with two 12-gauge shotguns. The Brelands were sentence to two years in jail February 2010. Daquan was later arrested in the Brooklyn shooting of Antiq Hennis in a stroller September 2013. This is an important case which (1) shows that the motive for a random shooting in a crowd can be somebody hired them to do it and (2) a person who attacks baby strollers can be connected to a previous hire-to-mass-shooting.
