The Pentagon Metro Station and Transit Center is now closed for the evening, while law enforcement works on the crime scene. In addition, both stations will be closed during the morning rush tomorrow, and all buses that were bound for the Pentagon will now head to Pentagon City Mall. It’s not clear when the FBI, who have taken over the investigation at the site, will issue a reopen command for those areas.
You will need to add twenty to thirty minutes to your morning commute time if you’re passing through that area, as things are probably going to be a little hectic in the morning, plus the additional time to deal with the increased walking time.
We are pleased to report that the two officers who were shot by the suspect are expected to recover from their injuries.
