Pentagon on lockdown after shooting 

Metro officials have reported a shooting outside the Pentagon station, near the entrance to the military facility. The shooting has put the Pentagon on lockdown and has closed the station. Three people reportedly were shot.

Chris Layman, a spokesman for the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, said that two of the people shot are Pentagon Force Protection Agency police officers.

Layman says the alleged gunman was also wounded and that they have the shooter in custody. None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening. And at this point all they know is that the suspect approached the Metro subway entrance and opened fire, according to Layman.

The Pentagon Metro Station has been closed and trains are being diverted to the Pentagon City station.
