Three Marines Dead on Quantico

 Yahoo News

A Marine shot dead a male and female colleague at a Virginia base and then killed himself, in the second fatal non-combat incident involving Marines in the United States this week.

Military investigators declined to comment on what motivated the shooting late on Thursday, which led to a 3-1/2 hour lockdown of Marine Corps Base Quantico that extended to the pre-dawn hours on Friday.

The shooter and his victims were school staff members and active-duty Marines, base commander Colonel David Maxwell said on Friday.

"This is a tragic loss for our Marine Corps family," Maxwell told a news conference.
Of course the gun-rights folks object to any attempts to control and regulate the personal weapons owned by servicemen. The result: record breaking numbers of suicides.
