Mark David Chapman (born May 10, 1955) is an American criminal who murdered John Lennon, formerly of the Beatles, outside Lennon's apartment at the Dakota, in Manhattan, on December 8, 1980. As Lennon walked into the building's archway with his wife Yoko Ono, Chapman fired five shots at Lennon from several meters away with a .38 Special revolver. Lennon was hit four times in the back. Chapman remained at the scene reading J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye until he was arrested by police. He planned to cite the novel as his manifesto.
