US: Police label shots at Pentagon as a ‘random event’

Police label shots at Pentagon as a ‘random event’ – Yahoo! News:

“Someone fired shots at the Pentagon early Tuesday in what security officials described as ‘a random event.’ No one was injured in the pre-dawn incident in which shots were fired into two windows at the sprawling Defense Department just across the Potomac River in suburban Virginia.

Steven Calvery, director of the civilian Pentagon Force Protection Agency, told reporters that a number of his officers reported hearing five to seven shots fired at about 4:55 a.m. EDT near the south parking lot of the Pentagon. The Pentagon building and the roads leading it were briefly shut down as officers did an initial sweep of the area.”
