Two cops shot near Pentagon; suspect injured

Two police officers and one suspect were injured in an exchange of gunfire at the Pentagon Metro Station in Northern Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A man coolly and calmly approached the screening area outside the Pentagon Thursday evening and opened fire, grazing two Pentagon police officers before they returned fire, critically wounding him, officials said.

The incident happened at 6:40 p.m., when the man wearing a coat -- with "no real emotion in his face" -- approached the officers outside the Pentagon Metro station, said Pentagon Police Chief Richard S. Keevill.
