Gunman sought in Pentagon shooting

And this after shots were fired at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, over in Virginia.
Another D.C. Sniper type Thing ?

Authorities searched Tuesday for a gunman who fired shots at the Pentagon in the early morning, possibly using a high-powered rifle. No one was injured.

The shots were fired shortly before 5 a.m., shattering, but not penetrating, windows on the third and fourth floors, officials said. They said the walls of the building might have been struck.

"Right now, we are considering this a random event," said Pentagon Force Protection Agency Director Steven E. Calvery. "We can only process what we have."

Federal and local authorities spent the morning searching for evidence, closing adjacent Interstate 395 briefly and combing through grassy areas. The FBI also was examining bullet fragments lodged in the windows.
