    Wow, breaking news on FOX, per Reuters.

    That's all I have.

    FOX news contacted LE, they said they're busy. No further details.

    FOX reported this happened while they were observing a moment of silence for 9/11 at the Pentagon.

    Can't be good! But maybe it was just warning shots.

    The President and First Lady were at the Pentagon. They had gone over the Bridge on the Potomac and were, I believe, going to return that way.

    This COULD have been a Coast Guard exercise?

    They started patroling the Potomac after 9/11

    I THINK it may have been warning shots if they didn't respond to their command.

    FBI says Coast Guard has a lead on this, 'something happened.'

    They should be hearing from Coast Guard shortly.

    Per Fox News quote from FBI "Something happened and the Coast Guard had the lead on it.
    Expect a statement from the Coast Guard soon.

    AP reporting coast guard said 'it was a training exercise and no shots fired.'

    Local are telling reporter, 'it was a training exercise and fake bullets fired.'

    Oh, I get it, like the fly-by of NYC?

    Poorly timed as the President was going back and forth to the Pentagon today.

    It is an exercise!

    Good grief!

    They said they exercise regularly.

    But on 9/11 when the Pres and First Lady are using the bridge?

    Oh boy, someone is probably in trouble.
