In January, an 18-year-old Western Albemarle High School student was arrested and charged with stealing two pickups from Crozet and setting them on fire.Slade A. Woodson was initially arrested on two felony counts each of auto theft and arson, but those charges have been reduced to misdemeanors, Clark said.

Authorities believe the trucks were taken on joy rides and set afire to cover up any evidence possibly left behind.

Charlottesville crew checking in.

I heard about this yesterday after I got to work. 64 was open when I drove in. I was carrying a duffel bag with a couple of pistols and ammo in the back of my car for a trip to the range later though, so I'm glad they didn't have roadblocks set up.

It was my younger brother's 10th birthday yesterday, and he was moaning and whining about not wanting to go to school.

All county schools shut down due to the snipering, so be careful what you wish for :P

colovion: ihatedumbpeople: On the local news this morning they reported that the shooters left an orange Pacer (I think) on the side of Route 29 right near the Greene/Albemarle county line...

When I think inconspicious, I think orange pacer...

/Why not drive around with a neon sign saying, "Here I am!" instead?


My bad...it was a Gremlin.

hellraizr2: speaking of rednecks.... now I've been to TN, MI, OK, TX, live in GA but I have never seen anything worse than South Eastern Alabama. Can anyone confirm or deny these are the geechiest redneckians in America?

Rural Arkansas, outside the few cities, once you leave the interstates /and/ the state highways behind, is a scary place.

/W&M grad who was rejected by UVA


For you, Ktonos:

Q: Why did Thomas Jefferson found UVA?

A: His kids couldn't get into W&M.

/Found out from law school that W&M grads are the nicest bunch of people ever - none of that UVA brainwashing going on.

I have found that a lot of this MS-13 panic really started in 2003 when Brenda Paz was murdered by them and her decapitated body was found outside of Mt. Jackson. I never really heard of them outside of Fairfax and No. VA until that murder. I started to hear a lot of stuff being blamed on MS-13 that should not have been - it's almost like some folks were waiting for an excuse.

That said, a Gremlin? Wow.

Actually, they got in, they just came home for spring break and told dad that, oh no, William and Mary won't do, and they're never going back to their old school.

From Luray right across the massanuttens from Shenandoah County. Ever since that whole Mount Jackson decapitation thing Local cops have been refering to Shenandoah County as "a hotbed of MS-13 activity."

Press conference info :

Executed search warrant at 4 AM, confronted with some guy with gun. One person in hospital, the 19-year-old Slade Allen Woodson arrested. Charged with 2 felony counts. Is considered a suspect in I-64 shooting, pending ATF ballistics results. Woodson owns the suspicious vehicle. 6 confirmed shootings.

The area that this happened in was very wooded and very rural. Why would a latino gang member be in the woods in a densley wooded and redneck populated area. Also, why would a gang member have a sniper rifle, don't they prefer pistols and automatic weapons? If the shot came from one of the mountain sides, the shooter would need a rifle to hit anything moving.

LOL - when I was at W&M, we were told that the reason why Jefferson founded UVA was because Jefferson didn't pay all of his college debts, so W&M denied entry to his kids. Probably apocryphal, but still, amusing nonetheless.

I love visiting C'ville, but the traffic is getting bad.

I think the point everyone is making is that the whole MS-13 thing is bullshiat made up by local cops and paranoid housewives who believe the cop BS.
When I heard the gang shiat. I rolled my eyes and assured my wife she had nothing to worry about.

Sniper rifle is a very vague term...a 30-06 is available at your local wal mart and will drop someone from 500 yds with the right ammo.

Mass Media(tm) like to call almost any rifle a "sniper" rifle. I'm guessing it was a deer rifle, 30-06, while not as popular as it once was, is still a popular round.

Sure, but do gang members or the people on this thread know the difference between a .223, .243, .300, 7mm, etc ect. I do not know all the specs by heart, but I know that any one of these could be used by a person to as a sniper rifle, so that is why I used the term.

The DC sniper actually used a .223 Bushmaster which is an assault weapon/sniper rifle, not a deer rifle, although I do know people here in Minnesota that hunt with AR-15s...go figure

You are obviously an expert at ballistics, but you are not at making friends, so I suggest you consider learning a few social skills before attacking someone you think doesn't know shiat.

And as for facts, WalMart does not sell rifles anymore, at least in MN. When they did sell rifles I never saw them carry a 30-06.
Yes the 30-06 would work, it is still considered to be one of the best calibers to use for long range, however I think that the .270 is a better choice because it shoots flatter, especially for a range of 500 yards, which most could not hit even with the right ammo, Mr. Know it f-ing all.

So they've caught the suspected shooter? That's good to hear, thanks for the updates, Smooshie.

To the oceans, white with foam
