Residents of Columbus, OH have been terrorized by random sniper-style shootings for eight months, and a recent incident has officially brought the number of shootings to 20.
 

Nineteen shootings along a stretch of I-270 in Ohio's capital have targeted cars, schools, and houses. Only one person was struck, a 49 year old woman who died from her injuries.

This most recent shooting occured early on Thursday the 22nd on I-71 in Columbus. This area is eight miles south of I-270, and the first of the shootings to occur outside of the 270 corridor

No one was injured, though the bullet did pierce a car's windshield. The driver of the car caught a glimpse of a person standing on an overpass near a vehicle when he heard the gunshot. As he sped away, the driver saw the individual get in the car and drive off.

Investigators were not able to gather enough ballistic evidence to link the shooting, but instead used "other physical evidence." The Franklin County Sheriff's Office did not state exactly what this evidence was.

Luckily this moron can't shoot very well, assuming of course that they are trying to hit someone.

BTW what is going on with those two other turncoats that were shooting up the streets, Malvo and what's his name?
