2 Pentagon police officers wounded, gunman also shot

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A gunman who wounded two police officers at the subway entrance to the Pentagon is said to be in critical condition.

The officers suffered grazing wounds in an exchange of gunfire. The head of Pentagon police says the suspect calmly pulled a weapon from his pocket and started firing. Law enforcement officials have identified the suspect as John Patrick Bedell. They're trying to determine if a second person may have been involved.

The shooting happened at a threshold at the complex. Since 9/11, subway passengers have not been able to directly enter the facility. After the attack, all Pentagon entrances were secured, then all were reopened except one from the subway.
