Another DC-area sniper-style shooting
Wife (FReeper nina0113) | October 4, 2002 | Steve0113

Another broad-daylight shooting just occurred, this time in Fredericksburg, VA, just off I-95. It's not even on the news yet.

About an hour's drive south of where the Montgomery County shootings happened, a woman was shot in the parking lot of a Michaels fabric store. My wife was in the store at the time. The victim had left the store and carried her purchases to her minivan. She unlocked the minivan and was loading her stuff into it when she was shot. No sign of the shooter.

No one else was injured.

The woman was taken away in an ambulance, condition unknown. Her license plate (which I'm not going to post) indicated that she had several children.

Isn't that at least the second fabric store shooting?

Her license plate ... indicated that she had several children.

Not being familiar with the DMV in that area, what is on the plate that indicates this?

Thanks for the scoop! I can almost understand why the news about this is being handled so delicately...so as to not encourage copycat criminals.

If she's alive I think it is not the same shooter. Just my immediate gut reaction. Thanks again for the scoop.

Sorry, I should have specified that it was a vanity plate.

Does anybody know where James Carville is? I think he finally snapped.

Probably things like bumper stickers, such as "My kid is an honor student at [name of school]", etc.

Why is the news today calling these sniper style shootings?

The initial reports led me to believe they were drive bys with a handgun.

Has the type of weapon used been released?

Were all the victims shot with the same weapon?

They believe it is a .223 calibre rifle.
