Falls Church is in Virginia. Was she shot while driving on the Beltway?

Must be Falls Road. Falls Church is in Virginia. Falls Road is in Montgomery County, north of the Capital Beltway. Quite a ways from where the other shootings have been done.

If this is connected to the others, everyone ---stores, gas stations, individuals etc should run out and set up camcorders everywhere. They gotta catch this psychopath.

According to the linked story above, a woman was shot AT on I-270 but was not hurt. A person in a blue truck is currently being detained by police for questioning.

About 30 to 40 miles, but still not enough details yet know if this sniper related. I-270 area is close to the first shootings last week.

Drivers on I-270 Report Shots Fired, Police Investigate

(Rockville) -- Police are questioning a man about a possible shooting on Interstate-270.

Montgomery County police say a woman driving on 270 near Route 28 called and reported to police that someone had shot at her.

She told police the shooter may have been in a blue Dodge pickup truck.

Police have stopped a blue truck near Route 124 and are questioning the driver, but they are not calling him a suspect at this point.

Woman says she was shot at by a man driving a blue truck. The man driving the blue truck is in custody. I agree, sounds like road rage.

Thanks for posting the article. Sounds like a routine shooting incident, if that phraseology makes sense.

Correction . . . the police have --A-- man who was driving a blue truck. Could be somebody different from the alleged shooter.

Shots -- plural.

Doesn't sound like it fits the M.O.

Wife just called and said she was ticked at posters that are in too big of a rush to post without verifying the accuracy of their post.

I-270 traffic gets pretty crazy at rush hour, still no excuse for road roage.

I would guess than very few road rage incidents also involve shooting. As to the
"stupidity" of shooting at people, shooting is deadly serious, and I am a bit reluctant to
apply that term to a shooter's mind-set. Evil-willed, yes; or self-defensive. But rarely is
a deliberate shooting a "stupid" act. If this person shot deliberately, at another person, it
is attempted homicide. And, in this circumstance, the shooting does not sound justified at
all.

Thanks for posting this. It's a good exercise to get ears and eyes tuned to the situation, even if it isn't the sniper in action in this incident.

I-270 has traffic at rush hour? I always thought was a car show, inasmuch as everybody appears to be parked ....

It's bad enough that shooting on the road is attempted murder of whoever the target is. But it also risks causing an accident that can take many more lives.

Somebody was predicting this morning that the next sniper shooting would be off 270.

The shooting of the woman in Fredericksburg, VA was first reported on FR in just this way ...... before the news media had the story. Once something like this is posted then the story can be developed or discounted as the situation merits .... and details added ..... but often FReepers are in a position to see or hear news before there is a media source to link to.

I remember during the Cincy riots, someone posted a link to a local police scanner on the Web. If there are VA/MD/DC web links to police scanners, that would be helpful to those of us in flyover country.

I'm addressing this to all readers on this thread.

Local website for WJLA also has a blurb on it but I can't get to them from where I am. Maybe you can have better luck.
