All five shootings, which occurred at military facilities during the late night or early morning hours of Oct. 16 to Oct. 17, Oct. 19, Oct. 25 to 26, Oct. 28 to 29 and Nov. 1 to 2, have been linked to a single weapon.

"We are following every lead that comes in and continue to call for the assistance of the public in helping us identify the person or persons responsible," said John G. Perren, acting assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office.

Prince William County posted the initial reward at just $1,000.  Now, the Justice Department has signed off on the recent increase "in support of the joint investigation" by the FBI, Fairfax County Police, Pentagon Force Protection Agency and Prince William County Police.

"We are confident that someone out there has additional information that will be helpful to this investigation,"  Perren added.
