State Police continues search I-77 shooter

RICHMOND – Virginia State Police have released photographs of a man and vehicle wanted for questioning in the shooting of three tractor-trailer trucks on Interstate 77 in Carroll County last week.
According to police, an early 1990s gold or brown sedan, believed to be either a Chrysler or Plymouth Acclaim, was seen in the vicinity of the trucks at the time of April 16 shootings. It is believed two or three people were inside the vehicle.
A similar automobile and a person who exited that vehicle were captured on surveillance video at a nearby convenience store around the time of the 2 a.m. incident. Both are being sought in hopes of obtaining information helpful to the ongoing investigation.
State Police investigators have expanded their search into neighboring states in hopes someone in Virginia or another state can help identify the vehicle or the individual who exited it to go into the store. The man’s right arm appears to, possibly, be in a cast.
Investigators hope this individual or someone else inside the car may be able to provide pertinent information related to the case.
Anyone with information about this case or the person and vehicle in the surveillance video is asked to call State Police at (276) 223-3131 or toll-free in Virginia at 1-800-542-8716. Tips can also be e-mailed to bci-wytheville@vsp.virginia.gov.
Officials at the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s (BCI) Wytheville Field Office issued thanks the public for numerous leads already generated in the case.
Last week, three tractor-trailers were struck by gunfire while traveling southbound on I-77 at the seven and two mileposts in Carroll County, near the North Carolina border.
Fortunately, no one was injured.
According to drivers, the suspect vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed with its headlights turned off when the shootings occurred.
