Shooter May Have Grievance with Marine Corps

Federal officials announced Friday that a shooter who has targeted three U.S. Military sites may be a marine or have an issue with the Marine Corps.

The FBI said that the shooter, who has shot at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Pentagon and a Marine Corps recruiting center, does not want to hurt anyone because the events were carried out overnight while the facilities were empty, according to the Washington Post.

The FBI also believes the shooter may be targeting the Marine Corps as an institution because of a "personal crisis," but the shooter could also be a Marine, according to USA Today.

The shooter's identity is still unknown, but the FBI is trying to coax the person to contact them to resolve whatever is causing him or her to target these buildings, according to the Washington Post.

John Perren, acting assistant director for the FBI's Washington Field Office said the shooter may feel he or she has been wronged by the Marine Corps either professionally or personally, according to the Washington Post.
