Police say a 37- year old man was shot in the abdomen while walking to a car in the parking lot of a Ponderosa Steakhouse.
A sniper task force is en route to Hanover County, Virginia, to see whether the shooting there is connected to recent sniper attacks in the greater Washington D-C area.
The shooting was reported near Interstate 95 about 20 miles north of Richmond.
Meantime, Washington-area authorities are waiting for the results of tests being run on a bullet casing discovered in a white rental truck.

Two local offices of the Department of Motor Vehicles are feeling the effects of the state budget cuts.
D-M-V branches in Rocky Mount and Bedford are two of twelve customer service centers to be closed.
A spokesman for the D-M-V says the closures were based on several factors, including building leases and proximity to other offices.
Statewide, more than 120 full-time employees, and 25 wage employees will be laid off as a result of the closings.
The last day of operations for the offices will be Friday, November 15th.

One woman died after being hit by a pickup truck while jogging in Bedford County this morning.
Around 8:30, 33 year old Sabrina Bugay was jogging with two other people on Route 6-63.
Police say a Chevy pickup truck was following a van, when the van stopped, and the truck swerved onto the shoulder, hitting the three joggers.
Bugay died around an hour later at Lynchburg General Hospital. There's no word on whether charges will be filed.
Police say the other two joggers did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
There were plenty of fans and cops at Lane Stadium today.
Authorities stepped up their investigation into fake Virginia Tech tickets.
At the last home game, police found 30 counterfeit tickets which they describe as pretty good forgeries.
That prompted ticket-takers at today's game to take a few extra seconds to check each ticket.
Police also suggest you be careful where you buy your tickets.

An Indiana man has come up with a new use for the gourds.
After inventing a gun that shoots potatoes, Jim Bristoe decided bigger would be better so he created a 30-foot long cannon that fires pumpkins.
The cannon can launch a 10-pound pumpkin with 11-thousand pounds of force.
Bristoe figures the gourds leave the barrel at 9-hundred miles an hour and can fly three miles.
Bristoe is an electrician and mechanic by trade.

The 107th meeting between the Hoos and the Heels continued the oldest rivalry in the South this afternoon.
The Tarheels threatened to make short work of the Cavs. Darian Durant threw three first half TD passes and Carolina led 21 to nothing at halftime.
But Marquis Weeks gives the Cavs a spark out of the locker room. Weeks fields the second half kickoff at the goal line. He heads right up the gut. Weeks gets a couple of blocks and is off to the races. He turns on the jets and outruns everybody to the endzone for a 100 yard kickoff return--the longest in Virginia history. Just like that the Cavs were back in it at 21-7.
UVA stayed on the comeback trail and Wali Lundy's short TD run tied the game at 21 to start the 4th quarter. Lundy rushed for 108 yards on the day.
