Mark grew up idolizing Lennon, but turned on him after becoming a born-again Christian because (like other born again Christians) he was angered at Lennon's comment that the Beatles were "more popular than Jesus." Chapman allegedly started planning to kill Lennon while in Hawaii. he had a further list of people in mind, including Johnny Carson, Walter Cronkite, Elizabeth Taylor, George C. Scott, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, but John Lennon seemed to be the easiest to find. Around 10:49 PM, the Lennons' limousine returned to the Dakota. Lennon and Ono got out, passed Chapman and walked toward the archway entrance of the building. From the street behind them, Chapman fired five shots from a .38 special revolver, four of which hit Lennon in the back and left shoulder.
