Montgomery County Police in press conferences have described only the gender, not the race, of the two suspects -- one a driver and the other the shooter. The be-on-the-lookout, or BOLO, alert that local police sent out earlier today to all law enforcement agencies also described in detail the "white box truck" used by the snipers. The six-wheeled vehicle resembles a commercial delivery truck, police say. The cab is smaller than, and separate from, the large box-shaped cargo area, which is completely enclosed. The rear passenger side of the bumper has been damaged. And there is block-lettering on the side and rear of the truck. A Montgomery County Police spokesman confirmed that the BOLO describes the suspects in the sniper slayings as "Hispanic." But he cautioned that they could be another non-white race. "We do not count on them being two Hispanic males," said Officer Derek Baliles. "Appearances can be interpreted. We do not want to limit anything at all." "It's possible," he added, that the suspects could be Middle Eastern. He also cautioned that their eyewitness account of the suspects is not solid. Baliles says the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is examining bullet fragments in two other shootings to see if they are connected to the other five, which occurred Wednesday and Thursday. A 72-year-old man Thursday night was shot to death on a Washington street corner. And a Virginia woman this afternoon was shot in the back at a crafts store. Her condition was not immediately known. ATF ballistics experts have determined that a high-velocity rifle firing a .223-caliber bullet was used in at least three of the shootings. The bullet is used in hunting rifles and M-16s and makes a large wound as it enters the body. The police spokesman says FBI profilers will put together a "word picture" Saturday morning to try to make sense of the unusual crime and come up with a possible motive. Authorities are not ruling out terrorism. Baliles says the Secret Service has assigned at least one agent to the case. The Office of Homeland Security and CIA are not involved, he says. The shooters took very select shots of random strangers, and appear to be trained in marksmanship. All six victims who died were killed with a single shot, some apparently shot in the head, although Baliles would not confirm that.

WHAT?!? No white militia men? With this being around DC this could be terrorism of the 1st degree! The shooters aren't stupid enough to enter DC proper and face a bunch of heavily armed Federal police. CRC

According to the FBI profiler the suspects are between the ages of 20-25 and white Columbine types that will keep on until caught...

I thought it made a .223 size hole. I guess that's "large".

Either they did not speak to an ATF ballistics expert and just made this up, or the 'expert' doesn't know squat. It makes a large hole exiting, not entering. Maybe they are covering the fact that it might be something of a large caliber so that they can demonize the AR15 type rifles.
