Someone took shots at the Pentagon building today, and police are trying to find out where the shots came from.
There were no injuries, but the shots did hit the building. Two bullets struck one window on the third and another on the fourth floors of the south side of the Pentagon. The windows were shattered but not penetrated. Police say the shots likely came from a high-velocity rifle.
First reports of the incident came from a civilian who told police he may have heard gun shots just before 5 a.m.
The Marine Corps Museum in Triangle, Va., was also hit by bullets last weekend. No one was injured in that incident and there was no damage reported.
Police are investigating whether the two shooting incidents are related.
Officials says today's shooting was the first incident of its kind since early March, when a gunman opened fire at a security checkpoint at the Pentagon. Two police officers were wounded in that attack.
