Well, we know it’s not some DC resident packing. They have laws against that sort of thing.

For those not familiar with the Pentagon, it has an undeground Metrorail station that used to feed passengers directly from the station platform to an underground entrance to the Pentagon.

That entrance was walled off years ago and Metro passengers must exit the station above ground and use one of the other building entrances.

The Pentagon Metro station is served by the Blue and Yellow lines.

I always wondered when the underground entrance was sealed up. Years before 9/11, I think.

Even though there is a battalion of well-armed, well-trained Pentagon guards nearby, they’re all up topside at the entrance, none are down in the Metro.

That means something different than if it were civilians on the train.
Cops and Security guards are on the frontline in the WOT.

Street shooting.
Now there will be a call for no guns in the city.
Street thugs and a drug deal gone bad.

There is a large Metrobus transfer station above the Pentagon Metrorail station. It is served by dozens of buses at all hours of the day, so the shooter could be a local boy gone bad, a gang banger, a jihadi wannabe or some other type of killer.

Pentagon is in Arlington VA. The trash from DC and MD pass through on the blue and yellow lines.
Most likely a gang issue or a domestic over drugs, Kools or whatever the crack of the day is.
