Indiana State Police warned that more interstate sniper attacks are possible, citing tips, reports the Indianapolis Star. After four shootings early Sunday that killed one man and injured another, police are taking all of them seriously. The shootings have not been conclusively linked, but police are treating them as being connected.
Columbus, Ohio, detectives who solved that city’s 2003 and 2004 sniper shootings traveled to Indiana to help. They were among 30 officers that also included contingents from the FBI and U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The Ohio sniper case near Columbus netted an arrest — after four months and 5,444 tips. An Indiana State Police officer said the sniper should “surrender himself and get the help that he apparently needs. There’s no sense in causing harm to other people that he doesn’t even know.”
