I heard there is a Hadith of some sort that said that Imam Mahdi would be killed by Muslims...that that is why Sam Khan originally attempted to bring in an Armenian Christian firing squad to carry out the execution.
does anyone know where i can find this hadith? thanks

This seems like it kind of alludes to the same thing?
In the "Dala'il-i-Sab'ih," the Bab reveals the following: "The hadith `Adhirbayjan' referring to this matter says: `The things which will happen in Adhirbayjan are necessary for us, nothing can prevent their occurrence. Remain therefore in your homes, but if you hear that an agitator has appeared then hasten towards him.' And the hadith continues, saying: `Woe to the Arabs, for the civil war is near!' If, in speaking these last words, the Prophet had intended to refer to his own mission, his statement would have been vain and worthless." ("The Book of Seven Proofs," Nicolas' translation, p. 47.)
