WASHINGTON — Though it may not be nearly as perplexing as the D.C. sniper case of 2002, authorities are trying to figure out who has been shooting at buildings in Northern Virginia. All the shootings have happened overnight.

On Thursday, the FBI confirmed that a shooting this week at a vacant Marine Corps recruiting office in Fairfax County is linked to shootings earlier this month at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Washington Post reports. Unlike the sniper case, no one has been hurt.

The Post reported that ballistic tests of bullets found at the scene point to the same weapon.

The FBI said Tuesday it has opened an investigation into three mysterious shootings at buildings in Northern Virginia since Oct. 17,  including the Pentagon. No one has been injured.

The FBI said it has confirmed that shots fired at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va., and the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., involved a single weapon.

It added that ballistics testing is underway for an overnight shooting that took place on Oct. 25 or Oct. 26 at the Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Chantilly, Va.

The incident at the National Museum of the Marine Corps took place during the early morning hours on Oct. 17, the FBI said.  A similar incident occurred at approximately 5 a.m. on Oct. 19,  at the Pentagon.

Right after the shooting at the Pentagon’s exterior walls, authorities said it appeared to be a random event.

Now, who knows?
