    A 20-year-old Marine was shot and killed on the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Va., over the weekend.

    Lance Cpl. Kevin P. Grant, of Harvey, Ill. was shot inside base housing, officials said. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.

    Investigators are still trying to figure out what led to his death.

    It was the third death in the past two weeks at Quantico. A 32-year-old Marine was found dead inside base housing on May 2, reported InsideNoVa.com.

    That same day, police said a 20-year-old Marine committed suicide on the railroad tracks near the Quantico base.
