A private funeral was held in Baton Rouge for the D.C. Sniper.

John Allen Muhammad was executed in Virginia last week for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station during an October 2002 shooting spree. It left 10 people dead and terrorized Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., over a three-week period.

Family and friends said goodbye to Muhammad at New Southside Funeral Home in his hometown of Baton Rouge. Muhammad's family was rushed out the back of the building at the end of the service.

The family has not confirmed if Muhammad will be buried or cremated.
