Shooter may have grievance against Marine Corps, FBI says

WASHINGTON

FBI: Shooter has grouse against Marine Corps

The shooter who has fired at the Pentagon, the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va., and the Marine recruiting station in Chantilly, Va., 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 shooter and said all the shots came from the same gun and probably from the same person. Authorities think Marine Corps locations are being singled out, and security has been stepped up for Sunday's Marine Corps marathon.
