Pentagon on lockdown put up capturing at close by Metro station


The Pentagon was locked down Tuesday morning after multiple shots were fired on a bus platform near the facility’s subway station.

At least one person was on the ground, according to two people familiar with the shooting who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose information. The person’s condition was not known.

The incident occurred on a metro bus platform that is part of the Pentagon Transit Center, the Pentagon Protection Force Protection Agency tweeted. The facility is only a few steps away from the Pentagon building.

An Associated Press reporter near the building heard several gunshots, then a pause, then at least one more shot.

Another AP journalist heard the police shout “Shooter”.

A statement from the Pentagon said the facility was closed due to “police activities”.
