John Lennon Anniversary

December 8, 2011 by staff 

John Lennon Anniversary, John Lennon, whose music set the beat of the turbulent 1960s, was gunned down by a suicidal fan, police said, who only hours before had been in ecstasy when the former Beatle autographed an album for him.

Authorities said the slaying of Lennon, who died in a hail of bullets Monday night, was a ”premeditated execution.”

Mark David Chapman, 25, of Honolulu, a pudgy amateur musician who had been seen hanging around outside Lennon’s home for three days, was charged with the shooting in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Chapman, who friends said was an ardent Beatles fan, reportedly carried dozens of Beatles tapes and a snub-nosed revolver as he loitered outside the Dakota, the luxurious West Side co-op where Lennon lived with his wife, Yoko Ono.

The gunman’s motives remained a mystery, but reports Tuesday painted Chapman as a quiet, suicidal young man who had trouble keeping a job and identified obsessively with Lennon.
