Updated at 10:59 a.m. October 29. 

Shots were fired overnight at the National Museum of Marine Corps in Triangle, Va., law-enforcement authorities said today. The incident comes on the heels of three other recent shootings -- including one at the museum --  that the FBI on Thursday said are linked.

The museum staff called police to the scene early this morning after finding damage to the building, according to Jonathan Prok, an officer with the Prince William County (Va.) Police Department.

 

No injuries were reported, and Prok declined to provide details about the damage. The county police, along with the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and military police at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Va., are investigating the incident.

The shooting apparently took place just hours after the FBI disclosed Thursday that ballistics tests linked the weapon used in Tuesday night’s shooting at a vacant Marine recruiting center in Chantilly, Va., with earlier incidents at the museum and the Pentagon.

The previous shooting at the museum occurred in the early morning on October 17, according to authorities. The Pentagon incident happened on October 19, also in the morning, while the recruiting station was shooting occurred either overnight on Monday or early Tuesday morning, authorities said. No one was reported injured in any of the incidents.

Prok said that it was “too early” to have gathered any evidence that would link the latest incident to the same weapon. “We don’t speculate [about any connections] until we have proof,” he said.
