FOX showing live coverage now from the scene.
3 hospitalized at GW Hospital.
That’s all anyone seems to know.
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.
OK the Pentagon is locked down. What kind of idiot would hide in military HQ?
Lots of chatter on Twitter, including this one from willrobinsoniii: People shot at the Pentagon near the buses. Guns and military everywhere. Confusion with wmata. Getting out of here asap
and this one from ASEcmu: Just witnessed a police standoff. perp was in car cop was pointing assault rifle at him.
“2 police officers shot outside Pentagon station”
UPDATED, 7:35 p.m.
SNIPPET: “Chris Layman, a spokesman for the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, said the two people shot are Pentagon Force Protection Agency police officers. He was not certain of their condition. He said they have one person in custody.”
We’re thinking the same thoughts.
I think that’s more for keeping people from mobbing the train station versus preventing some nut from getting into the most secured building on the planet.
KRON covering weather. *sigh*
>> It is served by dozens of buses at all hours of the day, so the shooter could be a local boy gone bad <<
If it were a big-time ROP operation, surely it would have occurred on the train — not outside at an entrance. So my guess is that the incident involves a jilted lover or a drug dealer’s enforcer.
Man caused disaster?
Let me guess... the ROP struck again!
Once I saw that kristinn had beat me on the thread I requested that the mods pull my thread. I didn’t see yours, so perhaps it was my fault that they puled yours, cause I told the mod that kirstinn had already posted a thread.

YIKES! That’s unreal.
