Two Pentagon Police Officers Shot

A report of possible shots fired near the building caused the Pentagon entrances to be locked down early Tuesday.

According to Associated Press, police searched twice but found nothing after officers reportedly heard a series of shots being fired at about 4:55 a.m. in or near the South parking area of the Pentagon.

Arlington Police and officers with canines responded for a second sweep, but again found nothing.

The source of the alleged gunshots is still unknown but all Pentagon entrances were reopened and everything was back to normal immediately.
