Pentagon Police Officers Speak Out

The two Pentagon police officers who were shot during Thursday night’s shooting outside the Pentagon Metro spoke out about their experience on several news programs Monday morning

“We were there to do our jobs and that’s what we did,” one of the officers said on the CBS Early Show.

John Patrick Bedell, the alleged shooter, was a brainy and troubled man whose once-promising future was destroyed by deep-seated paranoia and rage, according to the Washington Post.

Also revealed by the article — which features the first interview with a Bedell family member — is the fact that Bedell made a purchase from a Silver Spring gun store shortly before the shooting.

Bedell’s family is planning a private funeral service in California.
