According to the Defense Department, a police officer was slain at the Pentagon’s public transport terminal on Tuesday, prompting a lockdown of the US military headquarters.

After additional gunshots were heard near the Transit Center, the Pentagon was placed on temporary lockdown. The public was urged to stay away from the area because it was deemed risky.

According to sources, the shooting occurred on a Metro bus station located within the Pentagon Transit Center. While there have been allegations of “several” injuries, including one to a police officer, the PFPA has yet to provide any details.
