Mark David Chapman, at the age 40, killed John Lennon on December 8, 1980. He was just walking into his Manhattan apartment when the incident happened.
Chapman later apologized for the crime, saying, “I just want to reiterate that I’m sorry for my crime. I have no excuse. This was for self-glory. I think it’s the worst crime that there could be to do something to someone that’s innocent.”
