Arlington, Va.— The Army says a man found with a single gunshot wound at Arlington National Cemetery apparently committed suicide.
The Army Criminal Investigation Command says it does not suspect foul play in the shooting that occurred in the section that contains the remains of 50 victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon.
Spokeswoman Melissa Bohan (BOH’-an) says military and civilian police responded at about 10 a.m. Friday to reports of a single shot fired.
Bohan says all indications are that the shooting is “a tragic and isolated incident,” with no threat to the public.
The area the cemetery overlooks the Pentagon’s west side, where hijackers crashed a commercial airliner into the U.S. Department of Defense headquarters.
