Read the whole story--this was no accident. That's sick. Sorry to hear it, and so close to home.

Horrible news. Here's the story- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A woman was shot and killed Tuesday morning while riding in a car with her friend along Interstate 270. The shooting took place around 10 a.m. along the eastbound lanes of I-270, between state Route 62 and U.S. 23. SLIDESHOW: Shooting On Local Interstate According to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, a bullet entered the driver's side door of the car and struck Gail Knisley, of Washington Court House. The driver, Mary Cox, was not hurt. Knisley died at Grant Medical Center at about 10:45 a.m. Woman Shot, Killed On I-270 "I can't see anything I don't even see a bullet hole," Cox told the 911 operator. Family members said Cox had just picked up Knisley in Canal Winchester. They were headed for a day of shopping in Easton, but while driving along I-270, they both heard a "bang, like a balloon." Kinsley then slumped over in the front seat, NewsChannel 4's Jesse Abdenour reported. "We were just traveling, talking," Cox told a 911 operator. "We haven't been together for a while." Knisley and Cox grew up together, according to family members. Cox's son said the women had not seen each other for about a month. Police planes, helicopters and canine crews were searching the woods north of I-270 for possible suspects, Abdenour reported. All lanes of I-270 reopened at about 12:30 p.m. The shooting was the third in the past week in that area, NewsChannel 4's Holly Hollingsworth reported. On Wednesday, a car was hit by a bullet while driving on U.S. Route 23, just south of I-270. Two days earlier, another vehicle was hit by a bullet while driving on I-270 between Parsons Avenue and Route 23. Police Probe Highway Shooting A woman reported that a bullet struck her sport-utility vehicle on Wednesday. A bullet struck a UPS driver's truck two days earlier. "I just went to the back of my truck, and there was a hole in the back of it," the driver said. "That's when we called police." Additionally, the Franklin County Sheriff's Office confirmed that they have three additional reports of vehicles being struck by bullets -- two in October and one in May, Hollingsworth reported. No one was hurt in any of the incidents before Tuesday.

I don't think this was an accident. You may have someone trying to terrorize the area. A pattern is building if you look at other recent bullets hitting cars reports along those highways.

Cripes. I'm on my way this morming to my in-laws for Thanksgiving with Wife, her Mom and Dad and my seven year old. Guess what? They live in that area. Now how do you be extra careful? A bullet will go clean through my Concorde LXI.

Sad beyond words! One can only hope at this point it does not drag on like in D.C. as people are randomly picked off. You would think this joker would be easier to catch, given the terrain, FLIR and soon, snow.

Still trying to downplay serial nature or possibility of a moron doing this intentionally. 9pm same evening another vehicle was hit in area (US 23 south of 270). Still no word on caliber or much of anything else helpful. News vultures continue to pester the family for "how do you feel about her being killed?" reactions. I had the pleasure of flipping off one of the crews. Assholes. Services are Sat. I expect a LARGE crowd.

What a stupid question. Of course they know what the family feels, but: If it bleeds, it leads. How sick.

Sonofabitch. Any of our Ohio LEOs want to deputize a few of us? I'd be happy to come out there and pull countersniper patrol for a few days. [pissed]
