Gunfire reported at the Capitol

UPDATE: The Capitol complex was reopened, and now is locked down again. Blogenfreude just told me that it’s being reported there was no tape in the cameras in the garage. (Oy.) Raw Story says that gunpowder has been found in the Rayburn office building, according to a Democractic aide, and that Fox News reports “women who ran out of the building told Capitol police they had seen a gunman in the ‘locker room’ and the ‘gymnasium.’”

Anyone hearing anything more about this?



Capitol Police said Friday they were investigating reports of sounds of gunfire in the garage of the Rayburn Office Building, where members of the House have their offices.

The entire Capitol complex has been locked down, CNN's Dana Bash reported.
No victims. No active shooter. Investigation continues. May be nothing. Just passing it along.
