Shootings investigators look at Virginia truck

Investigators looking for whomever is responsible for a series of shootings south of Columbus continue to chase down reports of shots fired, and bullet holes found in cars, trucks, and buildings.

The latest bullet holes were found in a truck in surburban Washington D.C.. A Virginia truck driver noticed two bullet holes in his cab shortly after he drove on 270 south of Columbus. Chief deputy Steve Martin says investigators retreived 2 bullets which are being tested.

There is no word on if the I-270 shooter fired those bullets. In fact, no new incidents have been linked to the 18 shootings that have occured near the southern portion of the outerbelt.

Martin again pleaded for the public's help. He says investigators are convinced someone knows something or even saw a shooting.

Investigators have received 2,700 tips.
