A shooting that prompted a lockdown for hours at a Marine base in Virginia ended with three dead early Friday, including the gunman, authorities said.
Sgt. Christopher Zahn said they were notified of the shooting at Marine Corps Base Quantico late Thursday.
One person was fatally shot, and the gunman barricaded himself into a room, he said.
Using a public address system, police announced a base lockdown as the shooter was holed up inside a building.

Maybe another case of "workplace violence"
Sudden Jihadi Syndrome?
I wouldn't want to pre-judge the case, but let's say that I won't be surprised if the perp is identified as Captain Nadir, 1Lt Mehmet, or something similar.
But, again, let's wait till the names are released.
Wow- this is just a few miles away. Local coverage-
It will be blamed on the sequester
Time to clear the base of all guns.
A bad, sad week for our Marines.
In anouther sequester related tragedy......
All, many or some of our/my conspiracy thinkings are real and true, or at least not TOO far from wrong
Let's suppose they're still playing head games with young military men
Let's suppose all these shooters that come up out of nowhere, have no reason to be where they are doing what they do/did are programmed/drugged useful idiots ..
I mean ... let's just suppose, eh .. ?
WHERE one might ask would some of this spec/black ops originate ?
Just thiunkin' ....
I'm more inclined to think this may be a love-triangle sort of thing than a jihad sort of thing.
Of course, it could just be an all-homo love triangle, in today's "gay and proud" USMC.
“... may be a love triangle sort of thing...”
That is exactly what I thought when I heard the news this morning.
Yes, thats just what I thought. A triangle.
