The list of violent incidents blamed on Washington, D.C., sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad includes an Arizona mugging and a “malicious wounding” in Louisiana, court papers charged yesterday. Prosecutors alleged that Muhammad said “America got what it deserved” on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Baltimore Sun says the documents say Muhammad expressed “racist and anti-American views,” forged passports and drivers licenses, and shot at cars with a rifle from a concealed location in a Tacoma, Wash., park.

Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo now have been linked to 17 shootings in five states and the District of Columbia. Prosecutors in Virginia filed a “notice of unadjudicated conduct” that they may use against Muhammad at sentencing if he is convicted of.

The papers say that Muhammad stole the .223-caliber Bushmaster semiautomatic rifle used in the killings from from Bull’s Eye Shooter Supply in Tacoma.
