U. S. capital temporarily shut down

Posted by wlpo on April 11, 2015

A man is dead after shooting himself on the west front of the U.S. Capitol Saturday. No one was allowed to enter or exit the Capitol and the visitors’ center while it was closed for 2 hours Saturday during a busy day for thousands of tourists.  Some of them are in town for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.   The precautionary lockdown has been lifted. No one else was hurt.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
