On Tuesday morning, many people were injured by gunfire near the Pentagon’s main entrance. The United States military headquarters was put on lockdown.

The Pentagon Transit Centre’s Metro bus station is where the incident took place, according to a tweet from the Pentagon Protection Force Protection Agency.
Located in Arlington County, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, the site is quite close to the Pentagon.
Several gunshots were heard by a journalist from the Associated Press outside the building, followed by a brief silence and then at least one more shot.
The word “shooter” was yelled by cops, which was overheard by another AP reporter.
The Pentagon has been placed on lockdown due to “police activity,” according to an official statement.
