FBI Offers $20,000 to Solve Mysterious Shootings at Military-Related Buildings in Va.

WASHINGTON — The FBI upped the ante on Monday in the hunt for the person shooting shooting at military-related buildings in Northern Virginia and announced a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction in the case.

“We are following every lead that comes in and continue to call for the assistance of the public in helping us identify the person or persons responsible,” said John G. Perren, acting head of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “We are confident that someone out there has additional information that will be helpful to this investigation.”

Since mid-October, the person has shot five times at buildings overnight or in the early morning hours. No one has been injured. Authorities believe the person may have a gripe against the Marine Corps.

The buildings include: the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Pentagon, a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting facility and a U.S. Coast Guard recruiting facility. Ballistic tests have linked the bullets to the same gun.

Anyone with information should contact the FBI’s Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000 or e-mail WashingtonField@ic.fbi.gov.
