A service member was found dead in the Pentagon parking lot Tuesday, according to the Defense Department.
Around 3:30 p.m., “the Pentagon Operations Center received a call requesting a welfare check on a military service member,” press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement.
When Pentagon police officers responded to the building’s North Parking, they discovered the service member in his vehicle apparently deceased, a finding confirmed by Arlington County Emergency Medical Services.
The release had no additional details on the incident, and Ryder said an investigation is ongoing.
