    The FBI is investigating whether a shooting at a Coast Guard recruiting station in Woodbridge, Va., is connected to four similar shootings in the past month.

    It's been more than six months without resolution in a series of shootings aimed at military facilities in Northern Virginia. Now, authorities are making a new appeal to find the persons responsible.

    The shootings, which numbered five in all, occurred between mid-October and early November of 2010. Two occurred at the Marine Corps museum, one targeted the Pentagon, and two separate incidents happened at the Coast Guard and Marine recruiting stations in Chantilly and Woodbridge, Va.

    In each case, police say someone fired shots at the buildings in the early morning hours, or late at night. No one was injured, and several months later, no suspects have been arrested.

    "We're still reaching out to the public for any information that they might have, or any behaviors that they might have observed last fall that could lead to some new information coming in," she says.
