Interstate-64 between exit 118 in Charlottesville and exit 96 in Waynesboro was closed for several hours this morning, as police investigated a shooting in which two people were wounded, and up to four cars may have been hit by gunfire, according to NBC29. NBC29 reports that the search for the gunman, who is still at large, focused on overpasses over the Interstate west of Crozet. The two wounded drivers were treated and released at the Augusta County Medical Center. Due to the incident, Albemarle County schools, MACAA head start programs in Charlottesville and Albemarle, and the Miller School have been closed for the day.
