Across the street from the Whitehouse, a gunshot was reported this morning. There was no confrimation of the gunshot, but the capital was shutdown and reopened (within the hour) this morning.
The incident occurred at the end of a week of unusually tumultuous series of events that ironically enough, began in the same building. FBI agents armed with a search warrant seized documents and computer material from the first office of Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., in a weekend raid. Jefferson is at the center of a federal bribery investigation.
“They specifically said there was the sound of gunfire on one of the garage levels of the Rayburn House office building and asked staff to remain in their offices,” Connor said.
By them reopening the capital so quickly, I am guessing that they probably have found what it was or who it was. I will post more once it is found out.
