Gunshots were fired on Tuesday morning near the entrance of the Pentagon, and the facility – headquarters of the US military establishment – was temporarily placed on lockdown.
An officer reportedly died after being stabbed during a burst of violence at a transit station outside the Pentagon, law enforcement officials later said.
Arlington County fire department reported there were “multiple patients”, but it wasn’t immediately clear if they had been shot.
