Sniper update... If you haven't turned on the radio or TV yet...Authorities apprehended two people at a rest stop outside of Frederick, Md....From the Post:

Shortly before midnight, Montgomery County Police Chief Charles A. Moose announced that police wanted to question John Allen Muhammad, a former Army soldier once known as John Allen Williams. Moose said Muhammad had been linked to the case in a telephone communication last week from a man who police believe is the sniper, but he emphasized that Muhammad may not be directly involved in the shootings.

Hours later, Muhammad and a teenager were found sleeping at a rest stop off Interstate 70 in Frederick County, about 10 miles west of the city of Frederick and 60 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., a source said.

The teenager is said to be his son or stepson.

Police are saying publicly not to assume Muhammad is the sniper.

WTOP radio has reported that the Associated Press says a law-enforcement source says "we're confident these are the people" (paraphrased)

WTOP also said WUSA channel 9 says a rifle was found in Muhammad's car, but no official confirmation.
