DC "sniper" gets a last injection
Either the last or one of the last shootings was at the Home Depot in Falls Church, about 200-300 yards from the house owned by my ex, Frances, and I.
I remember seeing it on the news and calling in. Fran was apt to be frightened by the least things, and this really had things going; police had shut down Rt. 7 and were routing traffic thru the neighborhood, helicopters buzzing overhead. I remember her shouting to her mother to turn off the lights and not silhouette herself against a window. I pointed out the snipers' MO was shoot and scoot; it was a safe bet he was at least 10 miles away before the first squad car got to the scene.
