    Washington Post, five minutes ago:




    Rosalind Helderman reports:

    Rep. Gerry Connolly (R-Va.) was standing on a balcony of the U.S. Capitol with Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.) when they heard two burst of gunfire coming from the direction of the Rayburn Office Building.

    “It was almost like two very rapid fire bursts, very loud,” he said. “They were clearly coming from the direction. That’s when we saw people fleeing, and we realized this was no fireworks. It sounds liked the first volley of a 21 gun salute.”

    He said he could see people fleeing away from the Rayburn building and police officers running towards it before he was shepherded back into the building. Connolly says he was told by the Sergeant-at-Arms that a suspect has been apprehended.

    impossible. DC is a gun free zone.

    Local radio is reporting some sort of traffic altercation, a female apparently trying to drive where she shouldn't be near the Hart building (and that's pretty much the whole area around the Capitol), and possibly a chase. Still a lot of confusion, but there's about to be a Capitol Police news conference on CSPAN.

    that's why the DC Police said they would arrest protesters who brought guns to the area when a 2A protest was scheduled earlier this Summer.
