Police in Virginia are on the hunt for gunmen who fired at cars on I-64 near Charlottesville and left two people injured, ABC News reports. Police say the suspects, at least two of them traveling together in one car, hit six vehicles on the interstate after midnight last night. None of injuries are life-threatening. Police have no suspects or motive.

"The concern always is in these cases is, 'Is it going to continue?' Because if you don't know who the person is, you don't know their motivation, then could they come back out tonight and start all over again," said a former FBI agent. The case drew comparisons to the so-called Beltway snipers who killed 10 people in 2002. (More Virginia stories.)
