Four decades ago today, on August 10, 1977, police arrested the gun-toting killer David Berkowitz famously known as the Son of Sam,  who shot six people dead and wounded seven others across New York City in the hot summer of 1977. The days of David Berkowitz playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with New Yorkers while taunting law enforcement and toying with news reporters were finally over.
