CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) - The Virginia State Police is asking for help in an investigation into a shooting incident that severely injured a Pennsylvania couple on Interstate 95 in October.

Officials say that an analysis confirms Thomas and Betty Doyle were injured by shotgun pellets while driving on south on I-95 outside Richmond on Oct. 10.

The driver's side window of their dark gray, four-door 2007 Chevrolet Silverado was struck at around 11:30 p.m. as the pickup truck approached Chippenham Parkway in Chesterfield County.

Investigators say evidence collected following surgery strongly suggests the couple was shot at very close range in a vehicle that was traveling right beside them.

The Doyle family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
