The AMC theater in Tysons Corner has been the target of two "bottle bombs."

Officials say that for the second time in a week someone set off a bottle bomb at a movie theater complex in Fairfax County, leading to the evacuation of the theater but no injuries.

Fairfax County fire officials say the latest incident happened around 2 a.m. Sunday at the AMC Tysons Corner 16 movie theater. The device exploded near theater number one toward the end of a showing of the new X-Men movie. Over 300 people were evacuated from the theater. Two juveniles were exposed to the liquid inside the bottle but were not hurt.

Officials are investigating to see if the incident is connected to one May 18 where two explosions occurred.

A similar incident took place early Saturday at a theater in Largo, Maryland. No one was injured.
