UPDATE, 11:53 a.m., Nov. 3: Law enforcement sources confirm through ballistics that the shot fired at the U.S. Coast Guard Recruiting Office in Woodbridge is linked to the four other shootings that have taken place involving the Marine Corps Museum, the Pentagon, and the Marine Corps Recruiting Office in Chantilly, ABC 7 reports.

UPDATE 12:23 p.m., Nov. 2: Watch ABC 7's noon report on the shooting.

An employee entered the shopping center where the recruiting office is located around 7:30 a.m. and noticed a bullet hole in the window of the building, ABC reports. Prince William County police say they had no prior reports of shots fired in the area.

This incident comes after police announced Tuesday that last week's shooting at the National Museum of the Marine Corps was linked to three previous shootings at military facilities.

The FBI's Washington Field Office and Prince William County are on the scene investigating, but it's still unclear whether this incident is linked to the other four shootings.

UPDATE 10:54 a.m.: Sgt. Kim Chinn, spokeswoman for the Prince William County Police Department, said Tuesday it appears the shooting occurred overnight, AP reports.


Prince William County Police are investigating shots fired at a Coast Guard Recruiting Office near Potomac Mills in Woodbridge, ABC 7 reports. The office is located at 2700 Potomac Mills Circle # 832.

The latest bullet holes were found after a similar shooting at the National museum of the Marine Corps last week. Detectives determined the same gun was used in previous shootings at the museum, the Pentagon and a military recruiting center in Chantilly.

No one was hurt in any of the shootings.
