    I think the media craves stories like this as do anti-gun zealots. Do you think they secretly cheer inside whenever a story like this comes across the wires?

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia State Police were hunting Thursday for a sniper or snipers suspected of shooting at motorists along Interstate 64.
    A 20-mile section of the major highway was closed overnight and into the early morning hours as officers pursued the gunman — but has since been reopened.
    State police said that at least four cars were struck by bullets along an 11-mile stretch of the highway Wednesday night. A Virginia Department of Transportation vehicle was found with bullet holes near an exit for I-64 along Route 250, FOX News has confirmed.
    The freeway was shut down between about midnight and 6 a.m. Thursday, and Albemarle County Schools were closed, according to the district's Web site.
    State Police Sgt. David Cooper said two people reported injuries and went to hospitals in Staunton and Waynesboro. He said neither person had life threatening injuries and he didn't know if the victims were struck by a bullet or by glass.
    Cooper did not know what time each shooting occurred, but said the first call came in about midnight.
    I-64 was closed from 12:10 a.m. to 6 a.m. from mile marker 96 in Augusta County to mile marker 118 in Albemarle County and VDOT set up Route 250 as a detour.
    Cooper said police closed a long stretch of the interstate to gather evidence. He said investigators are closely checking several interstate ramps near the shootings, as well as wooded areas near the shootings.
    State police were holding a presser at 10:30 a.m. EDT Thursday, when they said they'd have updates on the case.
    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    He definitely is not a good shooter.Must be some kids.Everytime somebody shoots a gun at someone they are considered snipers.Whatever is going on it is not funny.
