ROCKVILLE -- As the prosecution moves toward the expected testimony of Lee Boyd Malvo as early as Monday, a ballistics expert testified yesterday that all but two of the people hit by sniper's bullets during the 2002 Washington-area shootings could only have been shot by the .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle found in John Allen Muhammad's car at the time of his arrest. Bullets taken from the bodies of eight people who died and three who were wounded were fired from the Bushmaster, ballistics expert Walter Dandridge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told the jury.
