The U.S. Supreme Court refused to block Tuesday's scheduled execution of sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad.

He is scheduled to die by injection at a Virginia prison for the slaying of Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station during a three-week spree in October 2002 across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Muhammad and his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, are also suspected of fatal shootings in other states, including Louisiana, Alabama and Arizona.

Malvo is serving a life sentence in prison.

Muhammad still has a clemency petition before Virginia Gov. Timothy Kaine.
