Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
So far, it's been another day of quiet in the Washington area.
But residents are still afraid, because they don't know when or where the serial sniper will strike next.
The Pentagon is now dispatching a high- tech spy plane to help out in the manhunt.
And a police source is quoted in the "New York Times" as saying that investigators have enough information from the latest attack in Virginia to attempt a composite drawing of the killer.
Teri Okita is in Rockville, Maryland this afternoon and joins us now with the latest.
