US Capitol on lockdown



The United States Capitol was placed under a lockdown on Friday morning, possibly due to a gun on the campus.

Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) told The Hill that a staffer was seen in the building with a firearm.

A second lawmaker added the firearm made it past security, where metal detectors and police officers routinely screen anyone coming in to the Capitol or the handful of connected office buildings.
Capitol staffers were told to go into an office room and “close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows.”

While the building is under lockdown, people are prevented from entering or leaving the Capitol Building and the adjacent visitor’s center.

Considering the amount of crazies there being armed seems sensible.

Turns out it was Rep. Elijah Cummings holding a bagel with strawberry cream cheese, or, as it was reported, a "scary black man with something in his hand."
