Default Another Possible "Sniper" shooting?

Got this from CNN:

ROCKVILLE, Maryland (CNN) -- The police chief at the center of the Washington-area sniper investigation revealed Sunday that someone left a message at the site of Saturday's shooting outside an Ashland, Virginia, restaurant.

"To the person who left us a message at the Ponderosa last night, you gave us a telephone number," Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose said in a short news conference. "We do want to talk to you. Call us at the number you provided."

Moose asked the media to carry his message "clearly" and "often." He did not take any questions, or elaborate. He did not clarify whether the message left at the shooting scene came in the form of a note or phone call.

One of Moose's assistants told CNN after the briefing that the chief's words would "make sense" to the person who left the message.

The Montgomery County Police Department is the lead agency in the sniper investigation, because the first five shootings occurred there.

A 37-year-old man was shot Saturday night in the parking lot of the restaurant, about 90 miles south of Washington on Interstate 95.

Authorities were waiting for word from forensics experts to determine whether Saturday night's shooter is the same person who has killed nine people and wounded two others since October 2.

"We are acting as if it is," Col. Stuart Cook, the Hanover County Sheriff, told reporters Sunday. "We'll continue along that mode until it's proved that it is not."

Cook would not detail the kinds of tests were being conducted, but said that "all available forensic abilities" were being used by the agencies involved in the investigation.

The man was shot at about 8 p.m. EDT Saturday as he left the restaurant with his wife. As they walked through the dimly lit parking lot, the woman heard a noise she thought was a car backfiring, officials said.

"About that time her husband declared he had been shot and went to his knees," said Cook.

The victim remained in critical condition Sunday at the Medical College of Virginia Hospital in Richmond, where he was undergoing a second surgery.

Doctors removed his spleen and parts of his stomach and pancreas in late Saturday during three hours of surgery. (Full story)

"We did not see any bullet fragments," said Dr. Rao Ivatury who performed the surgery. "But we did not go after the bullet because the patient was not very stable at that time."

Hospital officials said the man was conscious earlier Sunday,and could respond to people by opening his eyes and moving his extremities. He could not speak because he is on a ventilator.

That the man was undergoing surgery again was seen as a positive sign, indicating he was stable enough to enter the operating room.

Investigators hope the bullet can be retrieved so experts can determine whether it was fired from the same rifle used in the sniper shootings.

If the shooting is confirmed as the work of the sniper, it would be the first attack since Monday and the first on a weekend.

Between 150 and 200 officers on searched for clues Sunday in a 2-3- mile area near the scene of the shooting.

An official knowledgeable about the investigation said dogs were not able to pick up any useful scents and that geographic profilers are "bewildered" by the location of this latest shooting -- 40 miles south of Fredericksburg, where two other shootings took place and previously the site farthest from the suburban Maryland area north of Washington where the spree began.

The official added that, because of the geographic complexity of the case, the lead authority might be shifted from the Montgomery County Police Department to a federal agency. But, he said, no such discussions have yet taken place.
In other developments:

# U.S. officials have questioned al Qaeda prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, "to turn over every rock possible" in the sniper shootings, but there is no evidence that an organized terrorist group is responsible, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice told CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer" on Sunday.

# Funerals for two victims -- Dean Meyers, 53, who was killed October 9 at a gas station in Manassas, Virginia, and Pascal Charlot, 72, shot October 3 in Washington -- were held Saturday.

# Authorities Saturday downplayed the possibility that a white box truck that police seized Friday was linked to the case. Investigators searched the truck, and examined a shell casing found in the back, but a source told CNN "We don't have high hopes; it's not a high priority." Results of forensic tests are not expected until Monday at the earliest.

# The man who claimed to have witnessed last Monday's shooting of Linda Franklin at a Home Depot parking garage in Falls Church, Virginia, was charged Friday with knowingly and willfully making a false statement, police said. Matthew M. Dowdy, 37, faces up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor.

Man...this is getting crazy....
