I live in the Richmond area. This is too close to home. This is familiar territory to me. It's a scary feeling to be so close to something like this, and to know he's getting closer all the time. As awful as it looks to everyone, nothing compares to the fright of knowing he's HERE and me or someone I know could be next at any minute. You see these things on the news, but when it's in your backyard, it's terrifying. Now I know how people in war zones feel.

I'm listening to the MCV (this is a common place to me) Doctor right now. He said he had to take out part of the guy's stomach and pancreas and his whole spleen. He said he is a big guy and that's helping him hold up. They were not able to get the bullet out because it was too dangerous but he'll need more surgery today and maybe they can get it so they can analyze the bullet.

They got the bullet out of the victim, it IS the sniper. He left some kind of note at the scene, they won't reveal it of course. Schools are closed for miles around the area about 50 miles down 95 because of some kind of threat, I heard. Over 200,000 kids in 6 school districts are out today.

Apparently the police have surrounded a phone booth, and made an arrest, but they haven't announced anything yet.

Damn! The Exxon corner of Broad and Parham my aunt lives a mile from there! I just talked to her, the roads are blocked off. A guy on his cell phone says he saw 30 cops and 2 swat trucks and a helicopter. There is yellow tape all around the area. They did take a guy away into custody. They are filming the van now. There is an unconfirmed reports that the ATF traced the call faster than he ever could have thought. This could be the call mentioned in the letter left at the Ponderosa. I hope this is him so this can be over for everybody! I don't think it would be so much of a big thing if it was a false alarm, it has to mean something.

Apparently there was just another shooting at a gas station in VA, but they aren't sure whether or not it's related.

Yes, it was, but I haven't heard anything else about it. My co-worker's wife called him about it.

My niece who lives up there and is out of school today because of the sniper has been watching the local news all day and she never said anything about a shooting maybe it's a rumor?? They did pick up a second man at an undisclosed location.

Now an "expert" on CNN (but not an official news guy) says this is them and they negotiated their surrender to ensure they would not be shot. They killed all those people but didn't want to die, they only wanted the satisfaction of knowing they were never caught until they surrendered and they want to be famous and have books and movies about them. Again that is just what that guy said, nothing official, we'll have to wait and see. I hope this is over!!

Possibly another shooting here in Montgomery County. The victim was found on a bus this time, apparently.

This a few miles from where I live, but it's close to the area where Mona lives, I think.

I really would prefer NOT to have to go to work until this is over!

OMG! I can't even keep up to date with what's going on. I hope they catch the person/people involved before many others suffer.

In Silver Spring ((((Meeganie)))))

I really thought they had him yesterday. This is ridiculous. The schools in Richmond are closed again today. He's threatened kids and more. I think it's time to get the military involved. The public can't be held hostage like this

The P.S. is just ridiculous. I really hope they get this guy soon.

I'm tired of the media making such a show of this and falling all over themselves trying to top each other and people who know nothing analyzing everything.
