Shooting At Chantilly, VA Marine Corps Recruiting Station Related To Pentagon, Marine Corps Museum Shootings - UPDATE: USMC Museum Struck Again

CNSNews, via Weasel Zippers.
The FBI says the same gun was used to shoot at the Pentagon, a Marine Corps museum and a vacant Marine recruiting station in northern Virginia.

Officials say evidence from the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Va., links all three after-hours shootings.

No one was injured in any of the shootings, which all involved shots fired into vacant parts of the buildings. Investigators haven't determined a motive or identified a suspect.

Shots were fired at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on Oct. 17. Two days later, bullet holes were found in the Pentagon.

Shots were also fired at a Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly, Va., late Monday night or early Tuesday.
And a related Fox News story says extra police officers will be on hand for the Marine Corps Marathon in DC on Sunday.

Which reminds me. Some commenter (probably a military hating hippie dope smoker) decided to speculate that the shooter is probably a "Section 8" Marine who is doing the shooting. I'm not willing to speculate now, though I have some suspicions based on past acts which I will keep to myself.

UPDATE: The Marine Corps Museum was shot at again overnight.
