Shootings at military buildings linked

By Washington Post editors

A fifth shooting at a U.S. Military facility in Northern Virginia in recent days has been linked to the same weapon, authorities said Wednesday.

The most recent shooting occurred late Monday or early Tuesday at a U.S. Coast Guard recruiting center in Woodbridge. Sgt. Kim Chinn, Prince William County police spokeswoman, said ballistics evidence has linked that incident to four other shootings.

The unexplained spree began in mid-October when a gunman targeted the Marine Corps museum near Quantico. In the days that followed, the shooter struck at the Pentagon, a U.S. Marine recruiting facility in Chantilly and again at the museum.

In each case, shots were fired at a building overnight or early in the morning. No one has been injured, and so far the incidents have amounted to vandalism.

Whoever you are, if you keep on shooting at buildings then you will be caught. (they'll probably catch you anyway)
Then you can spend some well deserved time in jail to think about what an ID10T you are.
