When the gunfire stopped, Chris Mazyck lay on the pavement, blood gushing from six bullet holes in his left leg, groin and buttocks. It was 2:30 a.m., March 9, 1991, in Columbia, S.C. Mazyck, (pronounced: Ma- zeek ), a Penn State football player, had been shot at point-blank range with a .45 automatic, by a man he had ordered off his front porch about an hour earlier. At first, he remembers, there was no pain, only shock. He had been knocked to the pavement by the first round.

A pellet gun sniper targeting cars along Interstate 85 struck again Wednesday, in spite of deputies patrolling on the ground and in the air. In 10 days, someone has shot at least 26 cars, most on a mile-long stretch of highway bordered by pine trees, a river, a sewage treatment plant and a television factory. Deputies in camouflage suits are hiding in the trees, and spotters with binoculars are on the high ground along the highway, a major business route between Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta.
