U.S. Capitol Shooting: Gunman Captured, Officer Injured
Congress and White House on lockdown.

Shots were fired Monday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C.

According to the Capitol’s sergeant-at-arms the unidentified “shooter has been caught,” and “One police office shot, but not seriously.” EMS units reportedly responded to calls to treat multiple injuries at the building.

Capitol workers were told by authorities to shelter in place due to a “potential security threat.” House staffers received an email shortly before 3:00 p.m. ET saying that no one can exit or enter any Capitol buildings and if you are outside to seek cover immediately.

There was reportedly some confusion on the Hill as the lockdown began because of a scheduled lockdown drill that occurred earlier Monday morning. "THIS IS A DRILL," an early morning memo notified Capitol staffers. "EXERCISE EXERCISE."

Yeah, Knucks, this is one of our local whack-ohs who used to drive a school bus. That is, until he began Hi-rassin' a 17 year old girl about marryin' his crazy ass 'cause he's a prophet of god and lost his job. He kept on until they finally arrested him but a judge said he was mentally unfit to stand trial so he's been crazy for quite some time. with his gun totin' ass. He'uz as well known to local cops as he is to Capitol cops ...
