Tuesday, November 02, 2010 – Steve Fermier and Associated Press

Police in northern Virginia say shots were fired overnight at a Coast Guard recruiting station, the latest case of someone shooting at military-related buildings in the Washington area.Prince William County police say they’re investigating multiple bullet holes at the building.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Chinn said Tuesday it appears the shooting occurred overnight.

No injuries have been reported.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office is investigating.

But the agency says it’s unclear whether this incident is linked to other recent shootings at military facilities.

In four separate incidents last month, shots were fired at a Washington-area Marine Corps museum, the Pentagon and a Marine Corps recruiting station.
