ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - 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 a memorial to and remains of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon.

Cemetery spokeswoman Melissa Bohan (BOH’-an) says military and civilian police responded at about 10 a.m. Friday to reports of a single gunshot.

Bohan says all indications are that the shooting is “a tragic and isolated incident,” with no threat to the public. An Arlington County police spokesman described the man found in the cemetery’s Section 64 as “elderly,” but his name has not been released.

The site is adjacent to the Pentagon.
