Shootings — the first in mid-October — at four military sites in the Washington D.C. area have been linked to the latest shooting at a U.S. Coast Guard recruiting office in Woodbridge, Virginia. The link is based on the fact that the weapon used in the shootings is a match. The four previous incidents and sites include:
Two separate shootings occurred at a Marine Corps museum in Triangle, Virginia, about 36 miles south of Washington;
One shooting at a Marine Corps recruiting facility in Chantilly, Virginia;
One shooting at the Pentagon;
All of the shootings have occurred late night or early morning.
