2 Pentagon police officers shot

WASHINGTON — A spokesman says two Pentagon police officers have been shot at the subway entrance to the military complex.

Pentagon police spokesman Chris Layman says the alleged gunman was also wounded. None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening.

Layman says that at this point all they know is that the suspect approached the Metro subway entrance and opened fire.

Metro spokeswoman Cathy Asato said Thursday evening that she did not know about injuries.

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