Breaking News: Suspected Gunshots At Congressional Offices

I was alerted by my friend The Real Ugly American (would a friend call another ugly) that people at the Rayburn Congressional Office Building heard gunshots at the garage level. At this time, the Capital Police are moving people to safety. Others, who are not in the immediate area, have been told to stay in their offices and away from windows.

There is a gun range in the building but reports indicate it is a pretty tight facility and would be unlikely that this is where the sounds came from. Investigators do not know if a vehicle back fired or if there were actually gunshots but witnesses report smelling gunpowder. There are no reports of any injuries but four ambulances have been dispatched as a precaution.

Let us hope that this was not gun related and that no one has been hurt.

There has been no confirmation that when Capital Police said “shots in the garage” Ted Kennedy ran down there with a glass.

The Real Ugly American is following this story.
