Pentagon Provides Update On Shooting

The chief of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency provided details on the shooting incident that took place on the Metro bus platform near the Defense Department’s headquarters.

“This morning at about 10:37 a.m., a Pentagon police officer was attacked on the Metro bus platform. Gunfire was exchanged, and there were several casualties. The incident is over. The scene is secure and most importantly, there’s no continuing threat to our community. The F.B.I. is on scene leading the investigation. And again, the Pentagon and the Pentagon reservation are safe and secure. Right now, it’s an active, ongoing investigation. The information that I have is preliminary. So it continues to evolve, and I will be providing those details at the earliest opportunity. But right now, it’s just premature. The situation has been resolved, but the investigation must continue. We are not actively looking for another suspect at this time.” Reporter: “Can rule out that this was a terrorist attack?” “It’s premature, sir. We don’t know what the motivation was.”
