More details emerge in Pentagon shooting incident


More details have emerged in relation to the “shooting incident” that took place near the Pentagon, including a curious note about how the perpetrator perished.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released information via Twitter yesterday afternoon.

“At approximately 10:40 a.m. on Tuesday, August 3, an individual exited a bus at the Pentagon Transit Center in Arlington, VA, and immediately, without provocation, attacked @PFPAOfficial (PFPA) Officer George Gonzalez with a knife, severely wounding him,” the thread began. A struggle ensued, in which the subject mortally wounded Officer Gonzalez and then shot himself with the officer’s service weapon. Other PFPA officers engaged the subject, who ultimately died at the scene.”

According to FBI Washington Field, the deceased subject is a 27-year-old Georgia resident named Ausitin William Lanz.

The incident prompted a lockdown of the Pentagon, with the DoD force protection team urging people not to leave the confines of the building.

The investigation is ongoing.
