Lawyer: Melaku has no grudge against Marines

The lawyer for a former Marine accused of firing potshots at the Pentagon and other military targets said his client does not harbor any grievance against the Corps.

Twenty-two-year-old Yonathan Melaku (meh-LAH-koo) is charged in federal court with a series of overnight shootings beginning in October at targets including the Marine Corps museum in Quantico. He was arrested last month after police said they spotted him in Arlington National Cemetery after dark, acting suspiciously.

Melaku appeared Wednesday at a pretrial hearing in Leesburg on unrelated state charges for larceny.

After the hearing his attorney Robert May said he believes Melaku was happy in his service as a Marine reserve but declined further comment on the federal charges.
