With America’s nerves already on edge after the Dallas shootings, the U.S. Capitol building was temporarily ordered locked down this morning over a security threat.
The alert was issued for both the Capitol and the visitor center, where staff were ordered to shelter in place.
The lockdown was lifted shortly after 9:30 am EST.
Capitol police had said they were searching for an individual but offered few details.
One officer outside the Capitol told The Associated Press that police were responding to sketchy reports of woman who may have a gun; a House Democratic leadership staffer had said the sergeant at arms office had said there had been a woman with a gun in a tunnel leading to the Rayburn House Office Building.
The incident rekindled memories of a frightening late-March incident where a man brandished a weapon at the visitor center before being wounded and apprehended by police.
OBama-Needs to “Think of what he’s saying before -He opens his Mouth”Let’s don’t get anymore people killed.–TEXAS????????????????❤️????????
Agree with that!
She’s probably just a law-abiding NRA supporter going to pay off the Congressmen she owes (owns?).
Michael A. says
Why do you always talk or leave comments so stupid?

OracleGuy: You are OBVIOUSLY a fuking dip-stick ignorant ‘tranny’ guy! I hope they find this woman and blow her fuking head off! We need to get the hand-cuffs OFF all law enforcement! FUK what PreZident obongoloid syas! Let’s run these mf’er’s into the ground!
Please, people, let’s stop fighting with each other. Let’s try to understand others’ viewpoints.
Our Nation is in crisis on many fronts. Unfortunately when we need our president he is out of the country.
Hopefully he is on his way back to DC to LEAD us into a PEACEFUL frame of mind.
It will be a cold day in hell before that kitty Kat grows some cajonas and does anything.
That is why obamaa loves Hillary, there are rumors she has a testicle stuck in her throat and O is waiting for her to puke it up so he has at least (1)
Maria D'Alessandro says
You must be kiding he is the one who made our country the way it is now. he is always aw way when something happens
MJPerkins, you are joking right? We don’t have “Leaders” in America. We have representatives, who are supposed to lead to protect us, not to lead us down the rabbit hole which is what your god Obama is doing.
Don’t count on it he only divides we need to love all people we must Love as God loves us
I’m sorry to have to say this , but when it comes to obama there is NOTHING PEACEFUL ABOUT HIM heis constantly degrading our country our vets our military and everything else about our country. He is a loser face it He has done nothing right since he took office. When it comes to him you have to think outside the box and figure out what he is planing. YOu have to stay one step ahead of him to survive. Get this straight he is a commi muslim for sure. And did you know he prays 5 times a day at the WH. This was told by people very close to him — read my meaning. who else is close to him.!!!
You are a bigot with a big mouth. You are here now spewing your garbage !
For all his shortcomings he hadn’t rid us of you!
D’OweBama is a liar. He’s a fraud, a con-man, a trickster, a cheat, a criminal, a traitorous POS who is NOT QUALIFIED to sit the office, for he freely admits his dad is NOT a US citizen, which eliminates him under the “natural born” REQUIREMENT in the Constitution HE swore to “preserve, protect, and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Not to mention the fact that he’s given arms, training, ordinance, money, vehicles, tanks and even JETS to avowed ENEMIES of the United States – the EXACT definition of Treason given in the Constitution.
i can provide a link where D’OweBama is caught ON TAPE admitting to his “Muslim faith.” If you want to find it yourself – i think you’re unworthy of my effort – just go to youtube and put “Obama Muslim” in the search-window; you’ll find it soon enough.
If you want to call people “bigots” for telling the truth, go vote for The Liar and give up any pretense to being an intelligent, caring human being who is mindful of her children and grandchildren’s futures. Yeah, STFU and GTFO.
M J Perkins, we don’t need that worthless thing! He wouldn’t be any help, only thing he would do is protect the shooter!
It’s not NRA! One of Obama’s terrors found out Obama’s Gay! Or HILLARY?
Hey Oreo Girl, no more FoolAid until next month. It worked.
OracleGuy, I’m sure you like the idea of police officers being shot by thugs with illegal guns don’t you???
R. Irvin says
are you always this ignorant or are you on meds ?
You are to ignorant to insult.
r u stoned? or merely stupid
With all this terror activity occurring in the USA? Is this a prelude to Marshal law being in acted by the Whitehouse . ??
yes and mostly staged by the CIA so they have a reason to harass us.
i agree it is the only way obama can go now.
What are you nuts. Martial law ? Do you know what that is? Crazy!
you People are so G-D blind!!!!!!! I really cant wait for the day you all realize how duped you have been..WOW
You guys need to quit watching so many movies.
Are you that bored?
Try getting a life outside the four walls!
Hey Sheila, you dumb liberals will be the first ones screaming when the wrath of his majesty comes down. Don’t ask for our realists help. Keep blinders on tight!
you know that is what obummer is pushing for so he can call marshal law and he can stay in the white house I don’t understand why people are following him when he is a fraud
No way in hell that bum is staying in the White House beyond January 2017 !
For the entitlements so they can laugh in the taxpayers face on how they got over on the system
This is a very real threat. Obama goes not wish to leave and the Obama detest the Clintons. be on guard.
Lola Martin says
Definitely. They play the same game in all countries. Great excuse, as they will claim they will do it for the people’s protection, that is the day that they have the excuse to come after your guns. Stop dreaming. We are in a dictatorship which will be very hard to dislodge from our country.
“Lock downs” are for prisons, not free populations. That we’ve been teaching them to kindergarteners for years just shows how lost Americans really are.
Have you seen the pictures of the In military tanks and equipment on trains and transport trucks? Is Obama going to use In for Marital law?
Pat Downing says
Don’t forget all of the FEMA camps, the stockpile of ammo and the extra caskets on hand. We have got to make a stand and hopefully it will be a united one, no matter what race or color. We must STAND together.
as bad as Obama has been for our nation in the last eight years, i highly doubt any law enforcement officer, or military persons would even listen to him to go against the american people….. maybe a few would or might listen but their minds can easily be changed……..
NO MORE OBAMAS, NO MORE CLINTONS, NO MORE LORETTA LYNCH, NO MORE (COMEY)
President Donald J. Trump will pick his own team of players and the GOP will stand behind him or they will be out period…….
John Siemens says
Yes! Loretta Lynch loves to conduct clandestine meetings to subvert the law. I would not be surprised if she has her fingers in this one also in order to justify making all police departments subordinate to DOJ so she can control them.
Loretta Lynch could not even control the Clintons i highly doubt she will control the police departments if i say if she would even try that trick D.C. would be really in deeper shit than they are now…… Loretta is on her way out and she knows it……..
Burka, no burka, vest and remote or just an uzzie
West Hunt says
Fear ! Deeply sorry for these black men that had there lifes taken away. Fear on both sides ? Deeply sorry for the five police officers that had there life taken away. Not all police officers are bad.and yes black lifes do matter. Fear ! Causes this. White people fear they will be killed. Not all white people are bad.commonsense must rule.!
Protesters are hypocrites!! The police were protecting them yesterday.. While they were protesting against the police.. Wow! The protesters took off running, while the police tried to protect them. You can’t have it both ways !!!
All lives matter. Obama is the cause of all of this. I hate it when the say he is the first African American president. He is not black.
Sure he is. He was born in Kenya!!
Robert Jensen says
When you think that mr odama is nothing more than a trojan horse with the Islamic radical religion bent on the destruction of the Great United States of America. All of his actions make perfect sense.
Bernice : And Obama is to blame for your mental illness too!
You are fundamentally
Ignorance is not a good quality Sheila. But dumb liberals think, oh wait they don’t think! Enjoy your free phone and food stamps on us!
That nasty, stupid cop in the Louisanna shooting was plain OUT & OUT MURDER!!! The guy was on his stomach, hands behind his back & this damn cop pulls out his gun & fires!! What do you call that? I call it murder!! The other stupid cop plain “jumped the gun” out of fear! I don’t hate cops, but the ones I’ve met are sure full of themselves!!!
Try to understand the minute-to-minute focus of the typical officer during an eight hour shift, being dispatched into one stressful situation after another. Try to imagine what that officer takes home every night… often to an empty home, vacated by a wife and children who just couldn’t handle the daily stress that came home with the officer. Understand the constant danger, the stress, the ultimate personal sacrifices placed on these officers’ shoulders. At least show some appreciation by complying with their directives whenever you encounter them…because too many others will resist them while they are performing their duties, protecting the public at large.
Irene, you’re a liar. The guy was on his back fighting with both officers. He had a handgun in his right front pant pocket and the cops KNEW it. They could not subdue him even AFTER tasing him. The last time he tried to get the gun out they got a visual on the pistol. He should have stopped fighting, rolled over, and let them cuff him. He’d still be here. There is more than ONE video of this incident. Go look at the guy’s facebook page. Take a good look at the pics of him with the two little girls. I live in the BR area. It’s not like what you’re implying here, at least not yet. So shut your trap.
LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!! SURE MAKE SURE THE POS IS TAKEN CARE OF AND SCREW THE AMERICANS. THAT’S HOW obama WORKS. HE SUPPORTS EVERYONE EXCEPT THE AMERICANS. I CAN’T HARDLY WAIT TIL HE IS O U T !!!!!!!
black lives matter if they are gunned down while carrying a gun by a policeman but don’t matter when gunned down by another thug black man carrying a gun. Isn’t it funny that every black man killed by a policeman resisted arrest, and had a gun?
Can’t tell dumb Oblowhole lovers the facts, does not sink into clueless minds! Tragic.
clyde nelson says
I think that most police officers might need some sensitivity training on how to approach non combative situations I also think that most people both Black and white should be taught from childhood that the police are there to help them not harm them, if you are asked for I D comply if you are told to put your hands behind your back comply. if everyone will comply to the officers request I think a lot of problems could be avoided. when you break the law expect to be apprehended one way or another the choice is yours quietly or combative you will be apprehended.
Lee James says
MJ Perkins had the best idea,Let’s stop fighting with each other.We all have our opinions,ideas,beliefs and ideas,that is our right,We are in the worst crisis and bad times this country has ever seen and when those crooked people in office see we are fighting aginst each other they like that.Instead of trying to see who is the next person we want for president we are fighting and calling each other names.That may be a lot of the reason our country is in the fix it is in.The political people give some negative bait and some bite without knowing the real facts and others try to find the real facts.But are the real facts given or is it what they want us to hear.And after we hear all the stories we form lur own opinion and the fight begins
Silver Bullet says
If I was a member in the house or senate, Id be scared sh**less myself after some of the stupid tyrannical legislation they have passed recently.
Woman “may” have had a gun. It “might” snow in Miami, Florida on August 1 also.
obama can say what a tragedy this all is, but he is the leading orchestrator on all this. He is the one that continues to divide the country. Praising BLM and saying these thugs would look like his son and invites the thugs to the WH for a beer. He continues to release criminals from jail. It is part of his agenda to force civil disobedience so he can invoke martial law. The man is a lying muslime that hates this country and will do anything to bring it down.
If that was true, America would be down now!
Ignorance is no excuse for you!
Sheila, go lay by your dish!
Sheila, go lay by your dish!
When did black lives matter more than anyone else? Screw black lives, it’s ALL LIVES matter! Put the blame where it belongs, on idiot obama who has divided this country more than anybody else in the white house. Do you see any other race being violent?
Arthur Hartsock says
Police forces and security agencies all over US are now on edge, and waiting to see what will happen next. I’m sure that the events in Falcon Heights (St Paul) MN happened partly because the police officers are so on edge guarding against the threats that they’ve been receiving. So numerous Socialistic/Radical groups have America walking on eggshells worried about what’s ahead. Just remember this if you’re involved in a traffic stop. Just keep your hands visible, and don’t make any quick movements. All of us want to return home to our families.
Wanda leonard says
Shelia,I would tell chucky to go lay behind a car he might get lucky you know he’s calling you a dog ? Chuck shot the hell up D A,,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
