The shooter who has targeted three U.S. military sites in Northern Virginia in recent weeks may be a Marine or someone with a grievance against the U.S. Marine Corps, federal officials said Friday.
FBI officials released a limited profile of the suspect after he or she shot again at the Marine Corps museum near Quantico – the same place the shooter started almost two weeks ago.
FBI officials also tried to coax the shooter to contact them, promising to try to resolve whatever is bothering him or her.
Authorities stressed that the identity and motive of the shooter remains unknown. They said the involvement of a service member is only one possibility they are investigating.
Officials stressed that the shooter has not yet displayed any intention of hurting or killing anyone. So far, the shooter has struck overnight or in the early morning hours when no one would be around the facilities.
