Residents in the Washington D-C area begin another week with a sniper still on the loose.
There were no shootings over the weekend -- the second weekend in a row the sniper hasn't struck.
Last Monday, a 13-year-old boy was shot and injured outside a middle school in Maryland.
There have been two fatal shootings in Virginia since then -- one near Manassas and the other in Fredericksburg.
Police are keeping quiet about their investigation, saying they don't want to tip off the killer about what they know.
Jennifer Miller is in Rockville, Maryland this morning with the latest.
