A man standing on a highway overpass fired a handgun at a sport utility vehicle on Interstate 70, and investigators said it appeared to be linked to the months-long series of highway shootings in the Columbus area.
No one was injured in the shooting near Pataskala, about 15 miles east of Columbus. The bullet struck the SUV's right front fender and lodged in the battery. It was recovered and sent for lab testing.
The shooting appeared to be related to the 23 others since May. One person has been killed.
