FBI links Pentagon, Marine museum shots

Shots fired recently at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle involved a single weapon, according to a Tuesday announcement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which also said it would lead the investigation.

A third shooting, which took place overnight on Oct. 25 or 26 at the Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Chantilly is also being investigated as connected to the previous two incidents, the FBI said.

The first two incidents were linked using ballistics testing, the FBI said.

I hope whomever is doing the shooting doesn't find out about the Mark Center. You know that post-9/11 office building along I-395 in Alexandria, that was built to get Federal offices into safer locations away from major roads.
