Sniper victim was on FBI's cybercrime team

FBI employees today reacted with shock and grief to the sniper murder of their colleague Linda Franklin, 47, an analyst in the Cyber Division.

'Everyone is stunned,' said an FBI systems specialist, speaking on condition of anonymity. 'How could they not be?' The source said Franklin had been with the bureau since 1998.

The sniper shot Franklin at a Home Depot store in the Seven Corners area of Northern Virginia. She was the ninth victim killed in the sniping spree.

The bureau's Cyber Division investigates computer hacking, fraud and destruction of information.
