Pentagon, Quantico shooting links?
Authorities investigating the discovery of bullet holes in windows at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle said they will search nearby Interstate 95 for clues Friday morning, an examination that will disrupt the morning commute.
Prince William County Police said they have determined the caliber of bullets that were used, but are not releasing that detail. Police believe the shots were fired overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. They said it is not yet clear what type of weapon was used.
The bullet holes were discovered only days before at least six shots were fired at the Pentagon, striking windows and the facade. Prince William Police said they are working closely with the Pentagon Force Protection Agency and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, all of which are involved in the investigation of the shots fired at the Pentagon.
In the Pentagon incident, shots were fired shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday. Officials said they believed a high-velocity rifle was used. No one was injured. The Pentagon is about 30 miles north of the museum.
On Friday morning, Prince William police said, officers will be searching for evidence in museum shooting in the travel lanes of I-95 as well as the shoulders and median.
Police also ask that anyone who noticed unusual activity between 12:30 and 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 17 on I-95 near the museum contact police at 703-670-3700 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
