FBI Links Third Shooting Incident to Gun Fired at Pentagon

The FBI said today it has confirmed that shots fired earlier this week at a vacant Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly, Va., came from the same weapon used in two earlier incidents at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va., and the Pentagon.

No one was injured in any of the three incidents, which all involved shots fired into vacant parts of the buildings. 

 

An FBI spokesman said no other information was being released today.

On Tuesday, the FBI for the first time revealed that ballistic tests had confirmed the same gun was used to fire shots during the early morning hours on October 17 at the Marine Corps Museum and at about 5 a.m. on October 19 at the Pentagon, when officers reported hearing shots in the vicinity of the Pentagon’s south parking lot.

The FBI said then that it was also investigating whether a third incident occurring overnight Monday or Tuesday morning at the recruiting station was related.

 

The investigation continues to be led by the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
