DoD Alert: Marine Marathon Could Be Target

“Senior officials are worried that the person responsible for at least three military-related shootings near the nation’s capital could target Sunday’s Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, saying in an alert Friday morning that the recent shootings ‘are a cause for concern’ and could be build-up to a Sunday attack.

The FBI has confirmed that the same weapon was used in three recent incidents: one shooting more than a week ago at the Marine Corps Museum in Triangle, Va., one two days later at the Pentagon, and one earlier this week at a vacant Marine recruiting station in Chantilly, Va. The FBI is still trying to confirm that a fourth shooting Friday morning is connected.
