Report of active shooter at U.S. Capitol sparks emergency

Published

on

A possible active shooter incident was reported at the U.S. Capitol complex in Washington, triggering a swift response from law enforcement authorities.

However, after thorough investigation, the police confirmed that there was no shooter and no injuries had occurred. Washington Metropolitan Police Department spokesman, Hugh Carew, attributed the incident to a “bad call.”

During the incident, the U.S. Capitol Police issued an advisory urging people inside Senate office buildings to shelter in place. Although the U.S. Senate was in summer recess, some congressional offices were still operational with a skeleton staff present. Additionally, Senate cafeterias, coffee shops, security posts, and maintenance personnel were also active, and tourists were visiting the Capitol.

While the Capitol building itself was not on the highest level of lockdown, police advised everyone inside to stay in their offices as a precautionary measure. Despite the uncertainty, no confirmed reports of gunshots were received.

Responding to the emergency call, police ensured that the situation was thoroughly assessed. They advised individuals to move inside their offices, take emergency equipment, and maintain silence. As the incident unfolded, a heavy police presence was observed outside the buildings, with some staffers and tourists gathered around the Capitol complex perimeter.

In conclusion, the reported active shooter situation at the U.S. Capitol on August 2 turned out to be a false alarm. The authorities quickly handled the situation, ensuring the safety of everyone present in the complex. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of prompt response and vigilance in such critical situations.
