Three Marines Die in Shootings at Quantico

Quote:
Two Marines were shot and killed Thursday at the Officer Candidate School at the Marincs Corps Base Quantico and the suspected shooter fatally shot himself at the base, Marine Corps officials said.

The shootings happened at the school located on the Marines Corps base in Quantico at about 11 p.m., said 1st Lt. Agustin Solivan, a spokesman for the base.

Marines from the Provost Marshal’s office and officers from the Prince Williams Police Department responded and found two active-duty Marines dead at the scene. Officials declined to identify the victims until next of kin could be notified.

Military officials put the base on lockdown shortly after the initial reports and urged base personnel to remain indoors behind locked doors for nearly four hours.

Authorities said the suspected gunman had been barricaded inside a building on the base for several hours.

By 2:45 a.m. Friday, investigators had entered the building and found the shooter, also an active-duty Marine, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The incident was described as “an isolated shooting” in an initial message posted to the base Facebook page and also Tweeted from the base Twitter account late . An update posted to the page at about 1:45 a.m. said a “suspect has been barricaded by law enforcement personnel, but is currently not under custody.”

The messages asked that all base personnel remain indoors behind locked doors. The message posted at 2:45 a.m. lifted the lockdown orders and said “all normal activities are cleared to resume.”

Re: Three Marines Die in Shootings at Quantico

The shooter was male, 25. The other two, a female, 19 and a male, 23. As far as I know they have not released a motive. It sounds like a love triangle to me. I'm on my phone or I'd post the article. I've got some friends that live on base there and they said there were broadcasting over the PA system to stay inside with doors locked. They said it was pretty freaky.
