Investigators have linked the shootings at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps to a single weapon, according to a release from the FBI. The two shootings occurred last week only two days apart.

Investigators are still determining if the weapon was also used in an overnight shooting at a Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly. The FBI is investigating all three shootings.

The FBI did not release details about the weapon. However, TBD reports that the weapon was a high-powered rifle.
