Police label shots at Pentagon as a 'random event'
WASHINGTON – Someone fired shots at the Pentagon early Tuesday in what security officials described as "a random event."
No one was injured in the pre-dawn incident in which shots were fired into two windows at the sprawling Defense Department just across the Potomac River in suburban Virginia.
Steven Calvery, director of the civilian Pentagon Force Protection Agency, told reporters that a number of his officers reported hearing five to seven shots fired at about 4:55 a.m. EDT near the south parking lot of the Pentagon. The Pentagon building and the roads leading it were briefly shut down as officers did an initial sweep of the area.
An internal search of the iconic structure found fragments of two bullets still embedded in two windows — one on the third floor and one on the fourth. The bullets had shattered but did not penetrate the windows, Calvery said. The windows were part of offices that are being renovated and they were unoccupied at the time.
Calvery said he didn't know what kind of weapon was used but that it was probably a high-velocity rifle. No suspects were arrested, he said.
"Right now we consider this a random event," he said.

They just had a similiar incident at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico , Virginia. I wouldn't be too quick to call this a "random" event.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
