Washington (CNN) - A man who was shot after calmly opening fire on two Pentagon police officers died early Friday, authorities said.
The gunman was John Patrick Bedell, a law enforcement source said. At a Friday morning news conference, Pentagon Police Chief Richard S. Keevill referred to him only as Bedell.
The 36-year-old man lived with his parents in Hollister, California, said Terry Sutherland, a Pentagon spokesman.
Bedell had "no real emotion in his face" as he approached the officers Thursday evening, Keevill said. He pulled a gun out of his pocket when asked for identification to enter the Pentagon, the chief said.
Keevill praised Officers Jeffrey Amos and Marvin Carraway for acting "quickly and decisively to neutralize him as a threat" without hurting anyone else. FULL STORY
