Authorities Investigate Gunshots Fired Into South Side of Pentagon

Gunshots were fired at the Pentagon Tuesday from what authorities believe was a high-powered rifle, Fox News has confirmed.

Police who protect the massive Defense Department headquarters temporarily locked down some road and pedestrian entrances to the building after a civilian reported he may have heard shots at about 5 a.m. on the south side of the facility.

Steven Calvery, director of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, told reporters that five to seven shots were fired at the third and fourth floor windows of the Pentagon’s south side at 4:55 a.m. Tuesday.

The bullets did not penetrate the windows, he said, and two bullets were found embedded in the shattered glass.

The windows of the offices hit were under renovation and were not occupied. No one was injured in the shooting, authorities said.
