Officials: Same gun used in two military building shootings

The same gun was used in two of three recent shootings targeting military buildings in and near Washington, including the Pentagon, reports CNN's Pentagon correspondent Chris Lawrence.

Last week, shots were fired at the Pentagon, just two days after shots were fired at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Virginia. Ballistics tests revealed both shootings involved a single weapon, the FBI said.

Authorities are investigating shots fired Monday night or early morning Tuesday at the Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly, Virginia.

    Sounds like its a marine. He's probably suffering from a lack of combat. Or, some kid's dad fallen in battle.

    JohnnyR, i find it necessary to point out that you are a closed minded fool and you should go back under your rock and stay there to rot.

    As far as the actual story, I hope that this isn't a marine that isn't getting the help they need after coming home. I do hope they find whom ever it is and stops them before any one gets hurt.

    Interesting that guns are being used against guns (aka marines).

    Just keep your ears open for a Marine driving on the wrong side of traffic at a high rate of speed.

    Oh no, now we have to deal with the "Buildings Rights Advocates" and they'll probably be inspecting for grammar and spelling errors while they're here!

  15. really?

    Johnny, really? A muslim was behind these shootings and you got that from reading this blog? Really? If your car breaks down in the winter months, will you blames Muslims for that as well? Oh my bad – you probably would. PS – the dry cleaner called: your white robe and hoody are ready for pickup now.
