    RICHMOND, Virginia (CNN) -- Police converged on a gas station Monday morning where a white minivan was parked at a phone booth and took one person into custody. The incident follows the shooting of a 37-year-old man Saturday night in nearby Ashland that investigators suspect may be linked to the Washington-area sniper attacks.

    It was not known whether the man taken into custody is connected to the sniper shootings, which have killed nine people and wounded at least two since October 2.

    Sunday night, authorities made an appeal to the person who left a message at the scene of the shooting Saturday night.

    "To the person who left us a message at the Ponderosa last night, you gave us a telephone number. We do want to talk to you. Call us at the number you provided," said Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose at a brief news conference Sunday night.

    Investigators probing the latest shooting, in which the man was shot Saturday night as he walked across a restaurant parking lot, found a letter in the woods behind the restaurant, sources said. It was the first communication police have found in their investigation since October 7, when a Tarot card was found near the scene of a shooting at a middle school in Bowie, Maryland.

    Saturday's shooting took place outside a Ponderosa Steakhouse in Ashland, Virginia, about 15 miles north of Richmond and 90 miles south of Washington.

    According to sources, the person Moose referred to is believed to be the shooter, not a witness or someone otherwise involved in the case. Moose asked the media to carry his statement "clearly" and often. He did not take any questions or elaborate.

    The Montgomery County Police Department is the lead agency in the sniper investigation because the first five shootings occurred there. Nine people have been killed and at least two wounded since the shootings began October 2.

    The victim was in critical but guarded condition at the Medical College of Virginia Hospital in Richmond after doctors operated a second time. Other operations are likely. (Full story)

    "He's had a good night," trauma surgeon Dr. Rao Ivatury said Monday. "My best hope is that he's going to be OK."

    The man's wife, who was walking with him when he was shot, released a statement thanking the hospital and its staff for its work and the community for their support. She asked people to continue to pray for her husband.

    "Please pray also for the attacker, and that no one else is hurt," the statement said in part.

    If the Saturday shooting is confirmed as the work of the sniper, it would be the first attack since October 14 and the first on a weekend.

    A state official said police were seeking two witnesses to the shooting -- a man at a service station across the street and another man who entered the restaurant just before the shooting.

      They found out it wasn't them. I am glad as they had a Bush sticker on the van but it had temp. plates so they didn't own it during the last campaign.
