3 Dead In Quantico Murder-Suicide
Military officials aren't talking about a possible motive in what they describe as a murder-suicide that left three Marines dead last night at a base in Quantico, Virginia.
They say a Marine who worked at an officer candidates school fatally shot two of his colleagues there, a man and a woman, before killing himself in a barracks dorm room.
Authorities found the body of one Marine late last night in barracks, and the bodies of the two other Marines later.
All three were staff members at the Officer Candidates School.
It's the second tragedy to hit the Marine Corps this week. Seven members of a unit from North Carolina were killed Monday night when a mortar shell exploded during a training exercise in Nevada.
