http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/05/us/05pentagon.html - At least three people were wounded, two of them police officers, during a shooting early Thursday evening at a train station near the Pentagon. The shooting took place at the entrance to a Metro station adjacent to the Pentagon, prompting officials to place the huge Arlington office complex and Department of Defense headquarters on lockdown for a brief period of time. Witnesses told local news stations that they heard gunshots and saw people screaming and scrambling out of the station. According to Reuters, two of the people who were shot are Pentagon police officers. The third person is believed to be the gunman. NBC reported that two of the victims were rushed to George Washington Hospital for treatment; another was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Virginia, which has some of the most lax gun laws in the nation, has been drawing criticism from gun control advocates lately by pushing to expand gun rights. The states General Assembly approved a bill in mid February allowing people to carry concealed weapons in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, and the House of Delegates voted to end a 17-year-old measure forbidding people from buying more than one handgun a month. - with the usual anti-gun rhetoric added at the end. I wasn't there today, I was at a pistol qual. Scary stuff, I go through that entrance every morning.
