Video: The White House Capitol Hill Shooting
U.S. Capitol Police shot a Tennessee man Monday afternoon after he pulled out a gun at the Capitol Visitor Center, law enforcement officials said.
Officials originally said a police officer had been hurt, but Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa said no officers were shot.
“There is no reason to believe this is anything more than a criminal act,” Mr Verderosa said.
He said the suspect’s vehicle was found on Capitol grounds and the weapon was recovered.
The gunman was undergoing surgery at a hospital and his condition was unknown, Mr Verderosa said.
