Earlier: Arlington County’s bomb squad is on the scene of a suspicious package outside the Pentagon City Metro station.

Police have established a perimeter around the package, located behind a fence adjacent to a pedestrian sidewalk, near the intersection of S. Hayes Street and 12th Street. A bomb squad member in protective gear has walked over to the package and it is now apparently being inspected or analyzed remotely.

The east entrance to the Pentagon City Metro station, next to the Pentagon Centre shopping center, is closed.
