In Virginia, police in Prince William County are scouring Interstate 95 for clues related to last weekend's shooting at the national Marine Corps museum.

Shots were fired at the museum early Sunday morning, and police believe they may have come from nearby I-95, which runs in front of the museum with a clearing allowing a view of the structure. No one was injured in the shooting, but several windows and a few objects within the museum were damaged.

Police are asking for anyone who may have seen anything on the road from 12:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Sunday to contact them. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest. At this point, police do not have evidence that connects this shooting to a similar one that occurred two days later at the Pentagon.
